Over the past decade, Taglit-Birthright Israel has provided Jewish young adults with the opportunity to visit Israel at no cost. For many — more than 230,000 so far — it has been the trip of a lifetime: a chance to visit Israel for 10 days and make connections to their Jewish heritage and their Israeli peers. This past summer, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles’ Young Entertainment Division, which sponsors Birthright trips each year, created a special trip — dubbed the Showbiz Bus — designed for young L.A. Jews working in or studying for a career in the entertainment industry to visit Israel on a Birthright tour.
