"Generation Birthright Israel: The Impact of an Israel Experience on Jewish Identity and Choices" finds that a 10-day educational program in Israel continues to build Jewish identity years after the participants have returned. This study examines early participants (comparing them to similar peers who applied to the program but did not go) and their decisions and attitudes regarding marriage, community, and connection to Israel.
