Israel and Poland Journeys

Building Curriculum for Middle School, High School, and University Students

Jewish Journey works together with Jewish Day Schools and High Schools worldwide creating meaningful, educational and inspirational programs for Jewish youth.  We are currently working with schools in Australia, South Africa, South America, England and the United States. 

We can arrange trips ranging in educational goals such as Heritage trips to Poland and Israel, Hi Tech programming, seeing Israel through the eyes of the Tanach, Tikkun Olam, coexistence and much more.  We work to create the most specialized tours for our clients giving these teens a different perspective on Israel. 

Bring your curriculum alive in Israel's outdoor classroom.
 

Jewish Heritage

Heritage tours en route to Israel Poland, Prague and more

Our Europe trips are designed to strengthen the participants' connection to their Jewish roots and enhance their understanding of the Holocaust.

Marvel at the beauty of the Great Synagogue of Florence from 1892. Walk the streets of Cordova, Spain where the great philosopher Maimonides once lived. Enjoy the delicious kosher pastries that Paris has to offer.
Jewish history extends past the borders of Israel. Travel through countries in the diaspora where major jewish communities once existed and flourished in order to deepen your understanding of your heritage.

We focus on the glory of European Jewry before the war, appreciate the richness and prosperity of Jewish life and Jewish community and hear inspiring stories and visit the graves of some of the great Torah scholars, Hassidic leaders and intellectuals who shaped life in the shtetls and towns of Europe. 

For example:  The Vilna Gaon, The Rama,  The Netziv of Volozin, Rabbi Chaim of Brisk, The Sfat Emet, Rabbi Elimelech of Lizensk, Dr.Ludwig Zamenhof, Prof.Balavan, Janusz Korczak, Y.L.Peretz, Ester Rachel Kamińska and more.   After understanding what the Jews had achieved before the Nazis came to power, participants will appreciate just what a huge loss the Jewish people suffered in the Holocaust.
