European Jewish Heritage journey
with Rabbi Weiss • June 11 - 22, 2017
B’nai Jeshurun was founded as “The First Hungarian Congregation of Cleveland” and to this day a large percentage of our families trace their roots back to this region. In celebration of the 150th anniversary of the synagogue, we are returning to trace those roots, explore our heritage and learn about contemporary Jewish life in the “old country.” In addition to exploring major cities, we will attempt to visit where you came from wherever possible. If you are interested in joining us, please contact Rabbi Weiss or Diane Shalom.
