Really??? its free here??? Wow, i think you need to check your facts..I came here with birthright, ended up being a madricha to give back a bit and made aliyah last year. I work full time and certainly nothing has been given to me for free. The kids that I worked with on Birthright were not spoiled brats but rather intelligent kids who gained alot of knowledge about a country they had never been to before. In addition, they certainly have added to israel's economy through tourism. Before you attack this program, learn more about it.
