Bar / Bat Mitzvah & Family Tours to Central Europe

A Jewish Heritage tour to Central Europe is moving, culturally enlightening and lots of fun. You explore the capitals of three countries - Budapest in Hungary, Vienna in Austria, and Prague in the Czech Republic. Visit fabled palaces, castles, churches, see bridges, statues, monuments and Renaissance villages. Enjoy wonderful food, listen to beautiful music and view incredible architecture. Stay in world-class luxury hotels where the service is impeccable and personal.

Group in BudapestThe Jewish connection in this region is strong and meaningful, rich in Jewish history and culture. Visiting old synagogues, the Jewish cemetery in Prague, the monuments dedicated to the "Sho'ah" and the "model" camp of Terezinstadt are unforgettable experiences.

A Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration is offered in Budapest. I discovered a small, gem of a "Neolog" Synagogue where you attend Friday night services and a Shabbat Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration. The Rabbi and congregation are warm and friendly and after services, the families join the congregation for a Kiddush.

"Neolog" is a form of Judaism that exists only in Central Europe, a variation of traditional Orthodox using a Conservative Prayer Book. Despite the language gap, the familiar Shabbat service creates a common bond that makes everyone feel at home. To top the festivities you dine at the world-renowned Gundel Restaurant serenaded by Gypsy violinists.

A trip to Central Europe is a memorable way to mark a Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebration, get in touch with your Jewish heritage, and enjoy a wonderful vacation.
