Discover Jewish Civilization Around the Globe





JEWISH EXPLORATIONS is a unique adult Jewish learning program that specializes in educational travel with leading Judaic Studies scholars who are true experts in their fields. Our intimate study tours take you to places where Jewish civilization unfolded. See, hear, taste and touch the rich history of our People. Our scholars teach at major academic institutions and on specialized programs in the United States, Canada and Israel.


JEWISH EXPLORATIONS travel programs are intimate small group learning experiences. Our study tours have a minimum of 10 participants and a maximum of 25.  Each participant is given a full bibliography before the trip and a resource book with readings that coincide with each day's topic or location.



JEWISH EXPLORATIONS now makes it possible for you to travel both internationally and domestically to destinations of particular Jewish interest.  Under the guidance of a Judaic Studies scholar, you can gain insights and perspective that only a true expert can provide.




"The study tour was outstanding in every respect. David  Starr (the scholar) and Dudu Cohen (the guide) are a wealth of information and, in spite of my numerous trips to Israel, they have both given me a rare new perspective of the under-pinnings  which make this country so unique. Understanding and appreciating modern Israel from a Zionistic view is to see a new Israel to my eyes."
