TRAVEL

Multiple Choices
For Jewish Traveler

BY ROSE KLEINER
Special to The Jewish News

Several Jewish institutions
have recently taken note of a phe-
nomenon that has great educa-
tional potential for Jewish life.
Recognizing the popularity of
world travel among Jewish
people, these institutions are now
organizing various travel pack-
ages in which learning and and
fellowship will go hand in hand
with the usual amenities and
tours which are already available.
The American Jewish Con-
gress, B'nai B'rith, the University
of Judaism in California, other
groups and travel agencies are of-
fering tours led by knowledgeable
personalities, who are certain to
make the trip a mini-course and
an adventure.
This winter, the American
Jewish Congress has a tour of
Caribbean Jewish communities
— a two-week cruise which goes
through the Panama Canal. San
Juan, Puerto Rico, with the
largest Jewish community in the
West Indies, will be the first stop.
St. Thomas, in the U.S. Virgin Is-
lands, Curacao, with the oldest
synagogue in the Western Hemi-
sphere, and a visit to the large
Jewish community of Panama
City are all part of the itinerary.
A 20-day cruise, planned by the
American Jewish Congress, will
start in Haifa, proceed through
the Mediterranean and cross the
Atlantic to New York.
Jewish communities visited en
route will include the cities of
Izmir (Turkey), Athens (Greece),
Naples (Italy), Malaga (Spain),
Casablanca (Morocco), and Func-
hal (Madeira Islands).
Two tours, entitled "In the
Footsteps of Herzl," will trace
Herzl's route as he journeyed to
find supporters for the establish-
ment of a Jewish homeland. The
trip will commence in London,
where he conferred with the
Rothchilds, and go all the way to
Istanbul, where Herzl negotiated
with the sultan of Turkey.
For the spring the American
Jewish Congress is sponsoring a
number of "Heritage Expedi-
tions." The "Classic Cuisine of the
Italian Jews" will be the theme of
three different tours to Florence.
Termed "the world's first gour-
met cooking tour, in accordance
with Jewish tradition . . . a
uniquely Jewish gastonomic ex-
travaganza," the tour will meet
with Edda Servi Machlin, author
of The Classic Cuisine of Italian
Jews.
The tour will stop in Rome,
Pisa, Siena, Chianti and Mon-
tecatini Terme. Dates of the tours
are May 1-11, May 8-18, and May
15-25, 1986. The price of the tour
will cover the transatlantic air-
fare, selected hotels, the cooking
course and many meals. Spouses,
and companions of participants,
who are not taking the cooking
course, will pay a lower price.
Among the B'nai B'rith travel
destinations this year the most in-
triguing one seems to be The
Lands of Ahasuerus." Starting
with Bombay, home of a Jewish
community that dates back to the
18th Century, the tour will stop in
Goa, where Jews fled during the

organizations, and by B'nai

opportunity is now available at

experiences of Jewish study, cul-
tural enrichment and personal

are "Basic Judaism," "Great
Jewish Court Cases," "Romance
of Archeology," and "Great Cities
and Personalities in Jewish His-
tory."
The cultural arts program will
