A comprehensive Jewish Tour in Central Europe, this tour encompasses many of the great and varied traditions our ancestors developed throughout Europe. Prague is still as vibrant as it was in the past. Three of Eastern Europe’s most culturally glorious cities: Poland has recently found the willingness to face issues of its past, and is slowly coming to terms with its debt to Jewish society, Krakow’s former Jewish Quarter is now enjoying a ‘Jewish Renaissance’, Warsaw

Berlin is a reunited city that is one of the most popular destinations in Europe. Each destination has its own significance and place in our history, and their precious Jewish contributions still shine like jewels.
