For anyone in search of an exhilarating way to experience the rich Jewish culture and history of Greece, we would be pleased to be part of your journey.
From October 9th through the 17th, this 8 night/9 day program will take you on a whirlwind journey through all that this beautiful country has to offer. Squeeze a bit more out of your summer by enjoying the Mediterranean climate – as well as the region’s delicious cuisine (vegetarian options always available) – as you learn the ins and outs of Jewish life from ancient times to the present.
With stops in Athens, Chalkis, Volos, Thessaloniki, Veria, Vergina there are an abundance of places and histories to explore. This tour will allow you to visit numerous synagogues and other sites of Jewish interest, and to enjoy a special Shabbat evening with a local Jewish community. Additionally, you can experience iconic Greek treasures ranging from the Acropolis to historic Old Towns, from world class museums to unique regions like the Pelion Peninsula.
I took this picture of the holocaust memorial 3 years ago, when I visited Thessaloniki for the first time and fell in love with the city which was once home to a big and proud Jewish community.
I have been to a lot of places all over the world, which are important for our Jewish heritage. No other place and no other country brought as much passion and desire to explore and support these Jewish communities into my heart.
Convinced that the energy and feelings we are bringing to this struggling Mediterranean beauty full of light, are contributing to a stable future especially for the still small current Jewish community, I am inviting you with a joyous heart to mark your calendars and pack your bags – Greece is waiting for us!
