Pre-Trip Programs

January 16 (parent attendance required) | February 6 | March 12 | April 2 |  April 14 (parent attendance required)

Prior to traveling to Poland and Israel, a significant amount of time is dedicated to learning about the Holocaust (Shoah) and Israel. This preparatory program, sponsored by the Mayerson JCC, Jewish Federation of Cincinnati, and the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center, is meant to strengthen the participant’s experiences by providing them with basic concepts and knowledge to prepare them for this impactful trip of a lifetime.

All sessions are held at either the Nancy & David Wolf Holocaust & Humanity Center at Union Terminal (1301 Western Avenue, Cincinnati OH 45203) or the Mayerson JCC (8485 Ridge Road, Cincinnati OH 45236)
