Birthright, a non-profit organization that offers free trips to Israel for young Jewish adults between the ages of 18 and 32, has canceled its 42 trips planned for this summer due to the Israeli government's new seven-day quarantine requirement for all incoming travelers.

“We anticipate that the seven-day quarantine rule will be temporary, and we look forward to resuming trips as soon as possible,” said a Birthright spokesman according to a report by Haaretz.
