Routes to Roots

All Jewish Heritage Tours focus on the rich and inspiring Jewish traditions of Eastern Europe, they are gone, but not forgotten world of the “Shtetl”, on the scholastic heritage of the many Yeshivas and centers of Rabbinic learning and on meetings with the Jewish communities still surviving in these historic areas. In addition, we can arrange special visits for groups or individuals to places of familiar interest as part of our “Routes to Roots” program. Jewish Heritage Tours offers personalized tours for individuals, groups and study missions on request.
