So, now it can be told! This winter Jewlicious is partnering with Heeb Magazine to bring you what may very well prove to be the most err… unique Taglit-birthright israel trip ever misconceived. Imagine what happens when shwarma meets smoked salmon, when SoCalled meets Subliminal, when the very essence of diaspora Judaism clashes with hard core Zionism. And then goes on a trip for 10-days. Believe me, you want to be there. Here’s what Heeb Magazine had to say on the subject:
It’s not unusual for us to get free shit here at Heeb HQ. On a typical day, we might be sent a pet yarmulke and tallis, a survival memoir from a third generation Holocaust survivor and a hip-hop demo from a hasidic/lesbian/amputee. But today, to paraphrase a line from Passover (the holiday with indigestion, the invisible guy who likes wine and the socialization of stealing), is not like all other days. Today, we’ve been offered a free trip to Israel. The dates haven’t been announced yet, but our co-conspirators over at Jewlicious.com have convinced the powers that be at Taglit-birthright israel to invite us on one of their trips this winter. Oh yeah, one other thing: you’re invited too. Imagine that: a pilgrimage to the holy land largely consisting of barely literate, emotionally-stunted, over-sexed heebsters?!
So you want a piece of this? Starting September 5th, basically, NOW, visit the the Oranim Web site and register for your free trip to Israel. Make sure to choose Oranim as your trip provider and then select the relevant Jewlicious / Heeb trip when you get to the eligibility section. We’re under “Specialty” trips (no kidding!). You can also visit our Jewlicious trip Facebook group – just click on that link!
NOTE: The Taglit-birthright israel registration process is often somewhat complex. If you haven’t managed to get to the Jewlicious / Heeb trip, pick any trip and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Jewlicious” and let her know that you want to switch to the Jewlicious trip.
this trip is a gift from Taglit-birthright israel.
