What Travelers Say

  • In a country as vast as India with its myriad social, cultural and religious nuances, it was a blessing to have Nathan guide us. His expertise is a real joy and enables participants to experience a depth of understanding that would not be possible with tour leaders that don't know and love India as he obviously does. An unforgettable trip – truly, a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

  • My tour to India with Prof. Katz was one of the most memorable trips I have ever taken. His knowledge of the country, his selection of cities, and his personal relations with the people and places we visited made the trip to India perfect.

India: My Second Home

India is known for yoga, the Taj Mahal and mysticism. But what you may not know is that it has a long history as the most hospitable Jewish home in all of the Diaspora. With no experience of persecution, Jews found in India a haven that allowed them to freely practice their faith and contribute to every sphere of the society. Travel with INDIA: My Second Home and you’ll see the major sights of bustling Mumbai, the port city of Kochi, the cultural center of Kolkata, the capital of New Delhi, and mystical Agra. Highlights will include the fabled Taj Mahal, Gateway of India, Gandhi Memorial, Elephanta Island with its 5th century rock-cut temples, several UNESCO World Heritage sites, and so much more. Make new friends and learn new traditions at Shabbat services and dinners in Mumbai and New Delhi, explore rural Jewish settlements, tour Kochi’s beautiful 16th-century synagogue, the oldest in the Commonwealth of Nations, and enjoy person-to-person dialogues as you meet and get to know Indian Jews and their neighbors. Delight in cultural performances and be transported back in time by cruising through Kerala’s scenic waterways. Experience the magical mosaic that is India!
