"Pure Freilach! That's the best way to sum up our trip to Poland." The Yiddish word for joy is not exactly one you'd expect to hear when describing Jewish travel to Poland — a country most people associate only with the Holocaust. But Howard and Judy Sacks' memory of their trip is testament to the fact that there is something new and very exciting going on in Poland.
In the world of Jewish travel, there is sightseeing, there are tours, there are trips, and there are journeys. And then there are extraordinary experiences. The Taube Jewish Heritage Tour Program, whether you have three hours, three days or three weeks, offers an extraordinary experience.
In addition to the Taube Jewish Heritage group tours, the Taube Jewish Heritage Tour Program offers tailor-made study tours for individuals, families and groups from around the world seeking to discover their personal histories, explore a collective past and participate in the continuing revival of Jewish life in Poland. All of our tours integrate sites of Polish Jewish heritage and memory with visits to cultural venues and to Jewish institutions, and include special sessions and meetings with individuals dedicated to Jewish heritage preservation and those contributing to contemporary Polish Jewish life and culture.
Poland is becoming one of the most popular new destination sites with more than a quarter of a million Americans visiting each year. In addition to the country’s historical sites, cultural offerings and beautiful countryside, there is a growing interest in exploring Jewish Poland as well.
The Taube Jewish Heritage Tour Program provides an array of tour options for individuals, families and groups through Jewish Poland. In addition to this spring and summer’s group tours, developed and operated in cooperation with our land provider, Taube Jewish Heritage Tours (www.taubeheritagetours.com), the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland creates custom-tailored tours to fit the needs of each individual visitor, family or group.
The Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland also offers tour consultations and provides lecturers, presenters and workshop facilitators for organized tour programs.
