No need to pack your bags... just make sure your devices are fully charged for BMH-BJ's virtual vacations, in partnership with Beth Tfiloh! Professional tour guides from Keshet Educational Journeys will transport you around the world and back in time to explore the Jewish history, people, and culture of two destinations: "Golden Age" Cordoba and medieval Poland. 

Destination: Spain Sunday, December 20, 1 PM

The 1,000-year Jewish story of Sepharad (Spain and Portugal) is one of triumph and despair. Join Keshet’s Kayla Ship for a virtual tour of Cordoba, home of Hasdai ibn Shaprut, Yehuda Halevi, and Maimonides, and impressive landmarks such as La Mezquita. Kayla Ship will highlight the “Golden Age” of Spain and its contribution to Hebrew poetry, science, medicine, and Jewish philosophy.

Destination: Poland Sunday, January 10, 1 PM

Join Danny Ehrlich for an overview of the story of the Jews of Poland past, present and future as we consider these questions: Why did medieval Poland welcome Jews when almost every other country in Europe was expelling its Jews? How did Jewish life flourish in Poland for more than 1,000 years despite rampant anti-Semitism? What is the truth about Poland vis-a-vis its Jews during the Shoah? What is the status of the Jewish community in Poland today?
