9 Day | Jewish Tour of Poland
Traverse through time and space along the flat lands of Poland. Engage in Jewish history described by the Jewish community of the 16th century as Po-Lan-Ya, Here lies God. Visits to the ancient synagogues of Kazmierez, Krakow as well as ancient Jewish cemeteries in Krakow, Warsaw and Lublin will tell the story of a proud, vibrant Jewish community. Personal meetings with Polish Jewish scholars and leaders of the Jewish community, including Shabbat dinner with community members will provide insight into a community a mere fraction of its earlier glory and yet one which is in the process of re-birth. The painful and powerful visits to the Warsaw Ghetto, Maydanek and Aushwitz-Birkenau to name a few, will allow for your own personal testimony to the remnants of the horrors inflicted upon the Jewish People.
