    Discover Eastern Europe before embarking on a four-week tour of Israel! Experiential travel helps our teens understand the Jewish and secular culture, sights, sounds, foods, and so much more of the incredibly special places we are able to visit.

     On EPIC Eastern Europe/Israel, we spend the first week and a half of this journey criss-crossing Eastern Europe to both bear witness to the atrocities of the Holocaust, and experience the lasting impact of Jewish culture on large cities like Warsaw, Prague, and Berlin, and small villages in between. Through this experience, we carry on the memory of those we lost, while actively renewing and returning Jewish voices to the communities we visit. Of course, like all of our EPIC Israel experiences, this is capped with four weeks in Israel as we go “home” and continue telling our thriving Jewish story.
