Man, this guy is clearly Israeli and has no idea what its like to grow up a Jew in the diaspora. Of course Birthright may not give the " real" experience but its not meant to. Its meant to INTRODUCE ISrael to many jews who have little to know jewish education or experience in there life. Which it does amazingly. Birthright is an amazing thing and has probably saved Israel for generations to come. Its only 10 days, its impossible to see everything. If you go to NYC for the first time, you'll prob check out times square. Thats just how it is. Dont be so synical towards your countries institutions. There are plenty of options to return to ISrael that birthright provides that enable more volunteer options and opportunities to delve more deeply into the country. Birth right is an intro to the rest of your life.
