The central goal of the BIEC is to engage Jewish Young Adults in order to facilitate their connection with Judaism, the Montreal Jewish community, the people and the State of Israel. BIEC provides positive Israel travel experiences through various programs such as Taglit Birthright Israel, March of the Living, & Dorot. We believe Jewish travel is a catalyst for building and enhancing Jewish identity. It is therefore, our responsibility to find effective ways of continuing relationships with alumni after their trips that will help them incorporate Jewish values, responsibility and actions into their daily lives.
