As you may have seen in the news, there has been an escalation of hostilities in Southern Israel near the Gaza border and security authorities have ordered extended safety measures for residents in the area. Please see below for our ongoing security and safety procedures and precautions.
Here at Mayanot the safety and well-being of our participants is our first and foremost concern. In addition to the Israeli government’s strict security measures taken to guard public places, we take additional precautions to ensure participant safety. Mayanot has been an accredited provider of Birthright Israel since its beginning, and we strictly follow their safety and security guidelines. We take whatever precautions are necessary, no matter the cost, to ensure the safety of our participants. We do not hesitate to make any and all changes to our itineraries as needed. Please see Birthright Israel’s safety and security guidelines here.
