Taube Jewish Heritage Tours: Experience the New Poland


With Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, visitors can explore their past, engage in today’s Jewish revival, renew their Jewish identity, bear witness to the Holocaust, and experience history in the making and help rebuild Jewish life.

"Pure 'Freilach!' That's the best way to sum up our trip to Poland." The Yiddish word for joy is not exactly one you'd expect to hear when describing Jewish travel to Poland — a country most people associate with the Holocaust. But Howard and Judy Sacks' memory of their trip during the Kraków Jewish Culture Festival is testament to the fact that there is something new and very different going on in Poland.

Under the direction of educator Helise Lieberman, Taube Tours offers a series of customized tours.

The couple is part of a new breed of travelers flocking to Poland to explore firsthand the remarkable resurgence of Jewish life and culture there. Their travel needs are aptly served by Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, a program of the Warsaw-based Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland. Under the direction of educator Helise Lieberman, Taube Tours offers a series of customized tours enabling visitors to discover Poland's past and present on terms most meaningful to them.

Growing interest in touring modern Poland is clearly part of a larger trend. Poland has emerged as Europe's newest popular destination, with a quarter of a million Americans visiting each year and the Los Angeles Times ranking Warsaw as number three on a list of 29 destinations to visit. But there is something more going on here too, something distinctly Jewish.

With Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, visitors can explore their past, engage in today's Jewish revival, renew their Jewish identity, bear witness to the Holocaust, dialogue with Poland's leaders, meet their Jewish contemporaries, experience history in the making and help rebuild Jewish life. Options range from all-inclusive 8- to 14-day heritage tours to short specialty tours that supplement other travel plans. Taube Tours also provides publications and other informational resources on historical and contemporary Jewish themes.
