Announcing for Summer 2020!
A Journey to Spain, Portugal and Gibraltar
Join us as we travel back in time, with Rabbi Morgenstern and JRoots ( www.jroots.org), to learn about a thriving Jewish culture that molded a rich Sephardic heritage and influenced Jewry throughout the world. Jews arrived in Spain over 2,000 years ago. Spain and its surrounding provinces were once home to the largest, most prosperous and cultivated, Jewish communities in the world. We will encounter the roots of some of our most important thinkers and Jewish leaders like the Rambam, Rav Yehuda HaLevi, Isaac Abarbanel and others. We will also interface with local centuries-old communities of Marranos/Crypto-Jews, who adhere to a "hidden" Jewish identity and culture to this day - concluding with a special Shabbat in the beautiful modern Jewish community of Gibraltar. We will also, of course, visit world heritage sites and places of historic importance and beauty throughout our journey through Portugal, Southern Spain and Gibraltar. It promises to be an unforgettable experience.
Couples and Adults welcome.
Dates: Sunday, August 2nd - Sunday August 9th
Price: Approx. $2500/person (includes all ground costs)
Not including flights into Lisbon and Malaga
