IKAR is Going to Central Europe!


Germany | Poland | Slovakia | Hungary / June 24 – July 7, 2022

A different kind of journey:
Discover vibrant & beautiful cities, historic architecture, hidden corners, town squares, and open spaces by plane, train, bus, bike, & foot.
Bear witness to the tragedies, trials, & transformations of Jewish, democratic, & not-so-democratic societies.
Encounter Jewish experiences and perspectives at once foreign and familiar.
Create new relationships with community builders and civic activists whose challenges are not so different from ours.
Ride in the 2022 Ride for the Living and across bike-friendly cities.
Revel in the sights and sounds of the Jewish Culture Festival and enjoy contemporary art & music throughout the trip.
Weave new connections between past, present, and future.

Not joining the journey in person? Please join us from afar!
