Milk & Honey Tours is happy to announce a new three-day
tour to discover the Jewish history of Warsaw with Rabbi Dr. Walter Rothschild. Rabbi Dr.
Rothschild was born in England, and he is an international, charismatic activist of Reform Judaism in Europe. He is currently active as the Reform Rabbi in Warsaw, but he also writes non-fiction
books and essays. At the same time, he is a poet, musician, and cabaret performer on the stages of Central Europe. Last but not least, he devotes himself to his passion, the history of
railroading in Palestine. He obtained his doctorate at King’s College in this topic.
Rabbi Rothschild is the perfect person to facilitate understanding of the controversial, exciting city of Warsaw. It is a place forever connected with the unspeakable historical legacy of the Warsaw Ghetto, but that also witnessed the long years of socialism.
Together with Rabbi Rothschild, we will trace history, pay our respect, and explore the current developments in Jewish life in the city. The highlights of Warsaw will also be included. Private visits and meetings complete our impression.
