Adam Mayer, participant on the Baltimore Area Hillel Study Tour 2013: Encountering Poland Past and Future. The tour was organized by the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland

"This trip was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. It was very well organized and all of the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly and fun both those from Hillel and those from Poland. The biggest impact that the trip had on me was to definitively dispel my preconceived notion of Poland being a land of anti-Semites who do not care about Jews. While there still is some anti Semitism, there is also a growing interest in Jewish culture and religion. This realization was definitely one of the best aspects of this trip and I will highly recommend the trip to everyone I know. Thank you again for an amazing experience."
