No trip to Europe is complete without a visit to France. For Jewish travelers, there is an extra layer to the splendor of this country – a legacy that can be felt both in its capital, Paris, and in the magnificent, lavender-scented countryside of Provence. Jews have lived in France since Roman times, and are a vital part of its soul. In fact, France boasts the largest Jewish community in Western Europe, blending Ashkenazic elements from Europe and Sephardic elements from North Africa. Come along with our hand-picked expert, and become a connoisseur (and a maven) of Jewish France.
The Czech Republic has been imbued with a vivid Jewish presence for hundreds of years.

From fine crystal to Franz Kafka, from kosher vineyards to the venerable Rabbi Loew (associated with the legendary Golem of Prague), you will sense the mystique of this part of the world.
