Experience the highlights, heritage, and treasures of Europe on this once-in-a-lifetime experience. See for yourself why these cities have sparked generations of inspiration on this unique opportunity to forge friendships with fellow Jewish teens in one of the world’s most beautiful regions.
This jam-packed tour of European landmarks is an opportunity to explore the culture of Europe closeup—its history, art, architecture, language, theater, culinary treats, and contemporary social trends. Along the way, you’ll discover how the world-changing ideas that originated in these European nations continue to shape our own lives.
As a Jewish teen experience, this program is about understanding the storied history of Europe’s Jewish populations: the Jewish community of Western Europe’s origins, triumphs, and sorrows, and Italy’s 2,000+ years of continuous Jewish life. You’ll visit centuries-old synagogues, spend authentic Shabbatot in London and Amsterdam, and confront the legacy of the Holocaust at places like the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam and the Vel’ d’Hiv Roundup Memorial in Paris. Then, go on to find out what it meant to be Jewish during the Roman Empire, contemplate the enduring mystery embodied in the Arch of Titus, and explore the world’s original ghetto in Venice.
