BIRTHRIGHT 2013-2014

Looking ahead, registration for the Winter/Spring 2013-2014 season will be opening on September 10th. Please let us know if you want us to refer your application to Kesher, which will give the applicant priority trip selection status.  Since there is funding for approximately half of Birthright applicants, this priority status offer can be a very valuable tool to assist members of your community seeking to travel on Birthright this winter.

If someone you know is eligible and not yet registered, please encourage them to apply now for Taglit-Birthright Israel with URJ Kesher at

The program is open to Jewish young adults, ages 18-26 and who have never been to Israel on a peer program. The URJ Kesher experience embraces the values of Reform Judaism.



The Somers Memorial Holocaust Commission is planning its annual Holocaust program, which is an evening of Reflection and Remembrance. Our purpose is twofold: to educate children so that they will never forget the horrors of the Holocaust and other genocide, and to promote the teaching of Human Rights in our school.

Our yearly program, held at a local high school, includes many inspirational projects submitted by high school students. Also, a keynote speaker, a choir, and student singing and dancing help to make for a memorable evening!  

Everyone is welcome, and if you are interested in meeting and/or joining our group, please contact:
