Jewish Heritage Tours & Cruises

As North American Jews, we all came from somewhere. Our parents or grandparents braved the difficult transition from one familiar world to a strange new world. Although many of the Jewish communities of Europe are gone, they are not forgotten. To travel to the town or village of your origin is rarely part of a group tour, so the best way to see the places that interest you is to have an itinerary custom-made. Many of our tours visit old villages and “Shtetels” that were once thriving Jewish communities.

The staff at Aufgang Travel has been making arrangements to these forgotten areas for years and can help you trace your Jewish ancestry. We have the extensive experience and the “Yiddishkeit” – which literally means “Jewishness” – to organize Jewish heritage tours around the world.  Our itineraries are crafted with a focus on the well-known and lesser known sites of Jewish interest, combining past and present Jewish life, and exploring former Jewish communities from devastation to rebirth.
