Birthrighters pose for photos beneath a direction and distance sign post while touring the Golan Heights of Israel near the Syrian border. For the past seven years philanthropists have funded seasonal trips, known as "Birthright," for children around the world of Jewish descent to explore Israel and learn about their heritage with their peers. An estimated 25,000 young people participate each summer.
