We are excited to announce the second “Tzama Nafshi”- BaDerech Journey in the Footsteps of the Tzadikim, trip to the Ukraine, from Sunday to Wednesday, January 10-13 / 29 of Tevet – 3 Shvat.

We’ve designed an inspiring itinerary and comprehensive educational program offering a unique experience that is open to Bnei Torah of all backgrounds.

Our focus will be on celebrating the important historic Torah centers of Pre-war Ukraine, by visiting various Jewish communities, ancient shuls, as well as the resting places of Chassidic Rebbes and Torah personalities, to learn about their lives, unique paths in Avodas Hashem and the time in which they lived. We will also be visiting important and often neglected- Holocaust sites.

The opportunity to spend this meaningful Bein HaSemesterim “Journey” together with other like-minded Bnei Aliyah from an array of backgrounds, Yeshivot and stages of life is especially meaningful, and will no doubt contribute to the uplifting atmosphere we aim to create.

We are excited that Rav Mo Kaplan, a dynamic mechanech and gifted program director, will be joining us for this trip.

We will travel and enjoy Seudos and programming together as a group, and look forward to spending this “Four Day Hisvaadus” – of Tefillah, Torah & Dibuk Chaveirim together with you.

This trip is planned to provide you with the opportunity to recharge your spiritual batteries during your winter break from college. The flight will allow you to “stopover” in Ukraine for this amazing journey on your way to returning to Eretz Yisrael and spend valuable time back in your Yeshiva.

Please see the itinerary, logistic and registration details below, and do not hesitate to be in touch with any questions.
Looking forward to sharing this incredible journey together!
