Travel Date:

Join Torah in Motion for a unique and intellectually inspiring trip to Poland.

We'll be visiting Warsaw, Lublin, Krakow, Lodz and driving through numerous shtetlach in Galicia and throughout Poland. Poland creates a challenge for Jewish tourists, as it is the heartland of Ashkenazic practice where Jewish life thrived and developed over the course of hundreds of years, yet it is also the center of the destruction of European Jewry during the Holocaust. This trip will aim to celebrate the history of Jewish life in Poland by reviving its Batei Knesset and Batei Midrash, and to commemorate its destruction by visiting the graveyards – marked and unmarked – where so many Jews found their deaths. A unique aspect of the trip will be the personal stories of participants who will have the opportunity to visit their ancestors' home towns and villages. Individual trips that cannot be accommodated by the group itinerary can be arranged for an additional fee and should be coordinated with the tour historian.

And of course, in addition to the special Torah in Motion educational and spiritual nourishment, the Journey Through Jewish History in Poland will feature:

• Beautiful hotels in prime locations;

• strictly kosher food;

• expert local tour guides for sites of general interest.

Here's what people had to say about other Torah in Motion trips:

"I found the trip fabulous; the accommodations everywhere, the food, the guides were all excellent. I am very grateful I was able to attend." --Pessy Weitzner, Toronto, Ontario

"Thank you for a wonderful trip." --Eudice Greenfield, Skokie, Illinois

"Thank you for giving us the opportunity to learn about the  Jewish history of Sfarad in the company of such extraordinary people. I think it is important for Ashkenazim to explore Sephardi history in order to understand where our fellow Jews are coming from.  It was truly elucidating. Somehow one can read about it all day long, but to be there is something else, something much deeper." --Ellen Jaffe, Jerusalem, Israel
"Thanks--it was a fantastic trip!" --Neal Shanblatt, Santa Monica, California
"We looked for a kosher tour, and received much more--a spiritually uplifing experience that deepened our understanding of and appreciation for our Jewish heritage." --Sam and Susan Joffe, Merrick, New York
