Join young Jewish professionals on a unique adventure of touring, learning and fun on the Jewish History Tour of Prague, Vienna and Budapest. Ashkenazic Jewry came in two flavors: Western-Central Europe, and Eastern Europe. We will visit the most famous communities of Central Europe, where Jews lived rich religious and cultural lives over the course of many centuries. Our tour will span a wide range of history and culture, exploring how the clashes between the Old and the New led to the rise of Modern Orthodoxy. In spite of often hostile surroundings, the Jews of these cities built communities of remarkable inner-strength, faith and creativity. We will be guided by Rabbi Dr. Dovid Katz, popular historian and professor at John Hopkins University and contributing editor of the ArtScroll Talmud.
