Taube Jewish Heritage Tours (TJHT) invites people from around the world to explore Polish Jewish culture and to connect with the country’s enduring Jewish legacy, which has shaped modern-day Israeli and American Jewish societies and permeated all facets of Western culture. As the flagship program of the Taube Center, Taube Jewish Heritage Tours is committed to strengthening the bonds between Jews and Jewish communities worldwide.
What Makes Taube Jewish Heritage Tours Unique
When you participate in a Taube Jewish Heritage Tour, whether with your family, community, or campus, you will have an experience that is custom-designed for you by skilled tour experts, and you will be guided by top-rated scholars and educators.
Taube Jewish Heritage Tours opens doors to the depth and breadth of Polish Jewish heritage, from spiritual discovery to intellectual inquiry, a culture and history that for centuries has been central to both the Jewish and Western worlds.
We explore Poland’s past, present, and future. We pay tribute at Holocaust sites to the loss of millions of lives and of an entire civilization which were utterly decimated in the Nazi genocide. We discover, we mourn, we commemorate. And also we celebrate by offering unique opportunities to participate in today’s inspiring Jewish cultural revival and to understand how Jewish life could be reborn in Poland after the 1989 defeat of Communism.
Our close ties with Poland and its vibrant Jewish community makes us uniquely qualified to share our community with you and the triumphant story of the Jewish people’s survival and re-emergence in post-Holocaust, post-Communist Poland.
Taube Jewish Heritage Tours enjoys the support of key community leaders and works with a growing number of partner organizations throughout Poland, organizing special sessions with Jewish communal leaders and cultural activists, visits to partner institutions, and briefings with spokespersons of the government, embassies, and consulates as well as with the media.
In close cooperation with the Jewish Genealogy & Family Heritage Center, we assist in family roots research and visits to family ancestral towns.
