About Us

The Alumni Community is New York's Official Birthright Israel Home


The Alumni Community is New York's primary provider of Birthright Israel post programming and the central address for participants when they return home to the Tri-State area.
Weekly events at our downtown loft attract thousands of alumni every year. We offer Wall Street Networking events, Shabbat dinners, a Bar and Bat Mitzvah program, culinary events, Hebrew classes, fantastic trips to Europe and Israel, and more! Opportunities to learn more about Israel and Jewish topics are available almost every night of the week. Come check out any of our programs and find the one that's right for you. Almost everything we do is FREE. Reunite with friends and meet great people. Want to learn more?
