10 Day 10 Night Jewish Heritage Tour of Provence & Catalonia – June 20 to June 30 2016.
Whether it’s cruising the cliff-top roads, discovering romantic villages, or browsing for goodies at the weekly market,
Provence sums up the essence of France – sumptuous, sun-drenched and irresistibly seductive.
Joining this tour as a scholar-in-residence will be Samuel Torjman Thomas, a professor of Sephardi Studies and Ethnomusicology at Hunter College and John Jay College, and the Artistic Director of the New York Andalus Ensemble. Dr. Thomas will provide exciting contextual learning in the form of several mini-lectures throughout, including introducing texts, poetry, and songs that will bring the region’s heritage to life.
