Join a delegation of Alephs and B'nai B'rith Girls embarking on Ambassadors to the Baltics across Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia!

Participants will return home from this trip with new friends from around the world, new leadership skills, and a renewed sense of global Jewish responsibility.

Teens from the USA and Canada will be responsible for covering their domestic travel to/from the New York area.
Teens traveling from within Europe will not need an intercontinental flight and will pay a subsidized price of €700 ($750 USD), which covers all expenses besides an intracontinental flight to either Frankfurt, Germany on May 14th or Vilnius, Lithuania on May 15th.
