Birthright Israel reunion draws crowd to beach

More than 55 young adults turned out last month for the first local Birthright Israel reunion.

The Birthright Beach Bash on Treasure Island brought together Tampa Bay area participants in Birthright during the past 18 years. Those in attendance – many with their young children – enjoyed Israeli food from Meze 119, sharing Birthright Israel memories, and watching the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico.

The event was sponsored by the Tampa Jewish Federation, and the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties, in partnership with Hillels of the Florida Suncoast. Above, Micah Friedman holds a beach ball during an “ice breaker” game. When the ball was passed to participants, they had to introduce themselves and then answer a question written on the beach ball such as: What’s one word that describes your birthright experience? What do you carry with you from Birthright? What’s your favorite Birthright memory? Favorite Israeli food?
