Birthright Israel Excel was formed in 2011 in the wake of the success of the ongoing Birthright Israel program, which has brought hundreds of thousands of Jews for a 10-day tour of Israel. It is a business fellowship that begins with a summer internship in Israel and continues in the years after as a community focused on professional development and personal growth.

“Birthright Israel Excel was created to develop the next generation of Jewish business leaders. The vision of this program is multi-dimensional: to deepen the ties of participants to the State of Israel so they emerge as future Jewish leaders who want to preserve the identity, heritage, and welfare of the Jewish community; to encourage the next generation of international Jewish business leaders to strengthen the future of global corporate policy towards the State of Israel; and to foster the development of a think tank of innovative ideas with collaboration between international and Israeli companies.” the organization says on its Facebook page
