Following the trail of the Hasidic masters

Following the trail of the Hasidic masters


On the request of many we will organize a Hasidic journey in Eastern Europe again in 2019. This year we will follow the trail of Hasidic masters in Poland.

We will stay in the places where they lived and visit the material remains that are left: old synagogues, cemetaries, shtetls (old Jewish villages and towns). We will walk in the woods where the Hasidic masters travelled. We will follow in their footsteps literally and figuratively.

Besides a physical journey through their towns and roads, this is also a spiritual journey. We will study their texts, meditate like they meditated, sing their nigunim (melodies).

And we will meet representatives of contemporary Jewish life in this region, the living continuation of the old predecessors.

On our program we find Warschaw, Piaseczno, Ger, Koziniece, Przysucha, Kazimiers Dolny, Lublin,  Izbica, Lizhensk, Krakow.

When: May 7-14 2019

Guides: never change a winning team! Our guides are again tour guide Wilma Menko, magid and singer Shura Lipovsky and rabbi Hannah Nathans.
