What participants from the 2018 tour are saying:
"The SFW Adult Poland trip was everything I ever could have hoped for and MORE. The historical perspective, combined with the Torah aspect and an appreciation of the significant Jewish presence in Poland before the war, provided a comprehensive understanding of the enormity of the Shoah and allowed for an amazing interplay between the sadness and mourning and the greatness that are the Jewish people."
Alan Steinmetz (Woodmere, New York)
"The Shalavim Adult Tour to Poland was an unforgettable experience. Whether the leaders, the accommodations, or the group comradeship, each represented the very best opportunities for a warm, inspirational visit."
Susan Fruchter (Lawrence, New York)
"I really have no words. I don't even know where to begin. This past week was the most incredible week for me..... I learned so much history and facts I have never known before. But more than that, I learned things about myself I had never tapped into...The way you had every detail covered is mind boggling.”
Sue Gershon (Beit Shemesh, Israel)
"Combining the talents of Rabbi David Abrahamovitz as a master tour guide, historian and story teller with the added talents of Rabbi Yamin Goldsmith and Rebetzin Michelle Elmaleh from the Shalavim for Women Seminary on an adult tour of Poland this summer was like hitting the jackpot!!!
The tour was everything I could have hoped for and more. It was meaningful, inspiring and life-changing... The sites chosen were well edited to paint a vivid picture of the Jewish life in Poland that existed before the war and the horrors that were experienced during the Holocaust. Our shabbat experience in Krakow was amazing as a time to reflect on all we had seen and to reaffirm that "Am Yisrael Chai"...
Rabbi David shared with us many personal testimonies that he has collected from survivors which greatly enriched his explanations. Rabbi Yamin and Rebbetzin Michelle shared with us many beautiful divrei torah and other vorts. Their warmth and their insights added so much...
There was Torah learning, there were great discussions, there was singing, there was laughter and tears. Our group boarded the bus as strangers and bonded over this trip as a family. I can't recommend this trip enough and I can't stop talking about it!"
