Birthright brings young Jews from around the world to Israel on free 10-day trips. At Tuesday’s event, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on Birthright participants to make Israel their home.

“My message to you is short: This is your country. Come back again and again. Welcome home,” Netanyahu said.
