If you pre-applied, login to your Birthright account and choose your trip selection from the “trip marketplace”. To join our trip, select SUNY New Paltz with Mayanot departing from NYC.

If you have not pre-applied, you should:

Fill out the application
Submit a $250 deposit to ensure you travel. The deposit is refundable after the trip.
Submit your passport. Passport must be valid for 6 months after arrival in Israel. If you need a new passport, don’t wait, get one now!
Choose your trip in the Birthright trip marketplace.
Do an interview with Birthright to confirm eligibility.
If you have any issues scheduling an interview, with the application, your passport or any other technical questions, email

IMPORTANT: Because we are anticipating many more applicants than spaces, we will prioritize New Paltz students on a first-come first-serve basis, and only those with a submitted deposit. Anyone who wants to go other dates or with friends/family at other schools should research and find alternative trip options.

Any questions, you can email me. For technical help, email
