Jewish Historical Seminars offers a series of study trips to places of Jewish historical importance. The trips feature the history, culture, society and practices of Jewish communities that existed and still exist all over the world. The sites, frequently inaccessible to individuals, include ancient, old and modern synagogues, Jewish quarters, cemeteries, archives and libraries. Specialists in various fields of Jewish studies lecture daily. The presence of a local tour guide ensures that participants also visit important general historical and touristic sites.
