Leon Levine Foundation funds Israel trips

 | 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Leon Levine Foundation has given $130,000 to the Birthright Israel Foundation, a gift that will be matched by the Birthright Israel Foundation and let 80 young Jewish adults from Charlotte visit Israel.

The gift, which covers the cost of one Birthright Israel bus, qualified for a Birthright Israel grant from the Adelson Family Foundation that will provide a second bus for Charlotte and sponsor a third bus for youngsters from elsewhere.

Participants will visit Israel this summer and next winter.

Launched in 1999, the Birthright Israel program has provided free educational peer-group[ trips to Israel to 220,000 young Jewish adults ages 18 to 26 from around the world.
