When people consider the Jewish experience, the Middle East and Eastern Europe are the most frequent centers of attention or in Asia perhaps India- — but Burma…… ?
Today there are only a few Jews left in Myanmar. This trip will give you insight of this vibrant community and learn their escape from Japanese occupation in WWII. You will hear the interesting stories of “Jewish Life in Pagoda Land”. Special Hanukkah Celebration in Yangon with local/expat Jewish community, diplomats and others.
Beside Jewish experience – this trip will enable you to explore and experience this beautiful country about which Rudyard Kipling wrote, “This is Burma and it will be quite unlike any land you know.”
We hope that through tourism the Jewish community may begin to revive and that beautiful synagogue once again will be filled with joy and song. I do hope you can join us for this amazing trip. Please share with others who might be interested – Very much appreciated.
