The rich history of Israel is deeply influenced by other Jewish communities worldwide, whose connection to Israel spans the past, present, and future. Year Course Olami explores these connections with a series of week-long journeys outside of Israel to countries around the globe – from the cobblestone streets of Europe to the villages of Africa – to discover how they shaped the creation of Israel, and how Israel continues to shape them today.
Participants will tour famous (and not-so-famous) sites, visit embassies, attend cultural and social events, and meet their Jewish peers in each country to experience first-hand their relationship to our history, and ours to theirs.
A number of Olami tours are available, each focusing on a different region of the world, and a different theme in Jewish history.
There is an additional cost for the Olami Programme
