About this trip

 Join Rabbi Straus and Julian Resnick on this exciting visit to Jewish Spain.  Many of us have travelled to Israel, Berlin, Prague or Morocco with Julian over the years.  Julian is an educator’s educator who believes  that guiding is a means of educating and creating a narrative- both of what we see, and what we don’t see in front of us. Julian brings to our trip his passion, humor and knowledge. 


Registration deadline is December 15, 2022  

After that date participation cannot be guaranteed.

Listed price for trip is based on a minimum of 25 participants.

MLRT SPAIN ITINERARY
Your Trip Itinerary May 17-26, 2023

  

 From Rabbi David Straus and Lynne Breslau:


For 700 years--from 711 to 1492 of the Common Era--Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived in remarkable relationship and cooperation in Al Andalus – the Arabic name for the Iberian Peninsula and part of Morocco.

Although it wasn’t perfect, Al Andalus was a pre-modern inspiration for living in a multi-faith, pluralistic society. Looking back, people often called it “The Golden Age,” and in Spain it is known as the Convivencia, or “living together.”  Join us as we explore together this part of the world and learn how it might help us create a more diverse, inclusive and tolerant America
