Travel for Students and Families
Our travel programs for students, families, and community groups is rooted in two concepts. One is L'dor V'dor (Hebrew for from generation to generation) the Jewish ideal that each generation teaches and learns from each other their stories, history, traditions. The other is the idea that once we hear a witness we become their witness.
With these two concepts we planted the seed of our travel programs for students, families, and community groups with the intention that the groups would share with each other, learn from each other, and become each others witnesses to the history, tradition, and people they encounter on the journey.
Our travel groups are relatively small (no more than 25 people at a time) and we stay in the heart of Jewish quarters in each city or town we visit. We learn, whenever possible, traditional cuisine, songs, or traditions all while enjoying local food.
Of course our programs center on Jewish life, culture, and the Holocaust so we do not recommend or allow children under 13 on our programs even if accompanied by their parents. Visiting Holocaust sites can be highly emotional. This can help create strong communal bonds between people.
We think these trips are ideal for:
Bar/Bat mitzvah - celebrate with family while learning together about your family's history
High School graduation - prepare to leave your family nest while rooting yourself in your family history
Jewish Sisterhoods - learn how Jewish women lived and survived in places like Bergen-Belsen and the role sisterhood played in survival.
Jewish Brotherhoods - learn how Jewish men lived and survived in places like Auschwitz and the role Judaism, Torah, and community played in survival.
Interfaith groups - learn how the Righteous of Europe in places like Denmark resisted fear and saved their Jewish neighbors.
