Once you sign up with us as a Traveler or a Local, we’ll match you up according to your needs whether you are looking for tips, to chat online with a Local or hangout in person.

We will do everything we can to find a match. In the meantime, we would love for you to join us on our Facebook group so you can talk with other travel enthusiasts. If we don’t find a match, maybe you’ll find a new destination! 😉

You do not. You do what is right for you, if you want to exchange tips, awesome! If you want to chat online via email or social media, fantastic! If you want to grab a beer, go for it!

Prior to meeting a Local or Traveler, we recommend that you do your own background check. Check them out on social media, see what they look like, perhaps you have mutual friends. If you plan to meet in person, meet in a public place, a cafe for example is a great idea. For more info check out our Keeping it Safe page.

We get it. We also love talking about travel. Join our Facebook group and share your love for travel with other Birthright Israel alumni.

Imagine Taglit-Birthright Israel but in digital form. We’ve branched out into the digital sphere and created Taglit-Birthright Israel Labs, a platform aimed to create inspiring experiences for Taglit-Birthright Israel alumni (and young Jews) virtually.

Of course! We celebrate diversity and welcome you joining Worldwide Connect.

We’ve been running trips to Israel for over 22 years (!) and we’ve learned that meeting new people while traveling is one of life’s most powerful tools in creating rich social experiences. Our mission is to make connections globally and for YOU to experience an inspiring trip with amazing people.
