Explore the Jewish heartland with insight from world renowned scholar Dr. Stephen Berk! Jewish history neither begins nor ends with the Holocaust. Together, we will explore 1,000 years of Jewish history. We'll confront the horrors of the past, experience the nascent Jewish renewal of the present and discuss the challenges that face a Jewish future in Europe. Dr. Stephen M. Berk is a Professor of History at Union College in Schenectady, New York. Dr. Berk has partnered with Ayelet Tours for over twenty years and led over 100 trips to Russia, Spain, Europe, Israel and Eastern Europe. It is a privilege to have him with us!
