Neshama Program Begins With Arrival in Poland

The Class of 2024 officially began their Neshama 32 experience with their first stop in Warsaw, Poland. After visiting the Warsaw Cemetery, they took a walking tour of significant areas in and around the ghetto and visited the Nozyk Synagogue where they met with Chief Rabbi of Poland Michael Schudrich.

In the first daily student update, Elliott wrote, "...our first days in Poland were very special as we discovered and learned about important Jewish events that shaped the Jewish culture not only in Poland but throughout the world. It was very important to experience this and to see these places that our people lived through."

Over the next week, our seniors will explore Jewish life in Poland before, during and after World War II and will then travel to Israel for a 12-week excursion.
