 YIS Heritage Mission to Poland 2018
Registration Deadline is here. Please join us.
Dear friends,

The March 15th registration deadline is here for our 2nd YIS Mission to Poland taking place this Summer during the "9 Days" and Tisha B'Av. We will once again be guided by noted historian and teacher, David Bernstein, of the Pardes Institute in Jerusalem, and spiritually led by our own Rabbi Morgenstern. The trip is again being run under the auspices of Heritage Seminars.
We are currently a group of close to 30 people and encourage anyone who hasn't registered yet, or has been thinking about joining us, to register and be a part of this highly impactful trip. We will not only be remembering the centuries-old Polish Jewish communities of yesteryear, but giving dignity and life-affirming Kavod to the millions who were murdered on Polish soil in the Shoah. Please consider joining us in this holy mission.

To register, please click here.

For more information, questions and flight information, please contact Mission Chairs, Steve Halper - shalper@optonline.net or Stu Zisholtz - stu@zzllp.com.
