This report examines the impact of TaglitBirthright Israel on its alumni five to nine  years after their visits to Israel. The data are derived from the second year of a  longitudinal study of Jewish young adults. The broader study, of which this research is  a part, examines the ways in which Jewish young adults make decisions about marriage and family, participate in the life of the Jewish community, and view the role of Israel in their lives. In parallel to the findings from the study’s first year, strong evidence was found that the Taglit experience influences participants’ Jewish identities and feelings about Israel.
