Don't get me wrong. I see the benefits of Birthright bringing unaffiliated young Jews to israel. But it pains me to see people taking advantage of Birthright. They spend 6,000 dollars to send their kids on summer programs around the world (or fill in your own excessive expenditure) and then take money from the state of Israel to send their Day School graduate kids to Israel. shame on them too.
