Trips to Israel
We have taken part and supported organisation of educational trips to Israel since 2008, 1,5 thousand people took part in them. They are mostly organised in autumn around Sukkot. It is a very interesting time to find out about religious tradition, culture and to visit Israel.
Meetings in Israel with those who survived the Holocaust and refugees from Poland
In 2016 for the first time we managed to organise a meeting in Israel with a large group of those who survived the Holocaust. We managed to continue them in years 2017,2018 and 2019. There were several hundred people on each of those. These meetings were breakthrough moments for many in polish – jewish relationships. Many people could, for the first time, sit at the table and talk with Survivors, it was time of great joy. In 2019 thanks to Mrs Ilona Dworak Cousin from Polish – Israeli Friendship Society, we met in Ra'ananna with a group of polish refugees from the 40s. The meeting was full of emotions, many kind and friendly relatioships were born then.
