Cultural Arts and Travel

Judaica and Jewish culture enrich Jewish life and enhance Jewish living. More broadly, the arts bring beauty to our lives and provide new perspectives on the world. They express the language of the soul, open a window on the sacred and teach us to see the holy in the ordinary.

More than a trip to see beautiful sites and learn interesting things, a Jewish heritage tour is a spiritual journey of discovery the reveals the treasures of Jewish life, that opens our soul to the stories of our people and that creates life-long community and special memories along the way.

Tour To Germany | With Cantor Audrey Abrams
October 24 – November 3, 2022

This is a journey of discovery- seeking the origins and celebrating the achievements of Ashkenazi Jews, from earliest origins of the banks of the river Rhine all the way to the East and to the ports from which Jews set sail for the “West.”  Contact Cantor Abrams for more information on this travel opportunity!
