Discover Jewish Poland with Us


Please sign up for our mailing list to learn about our Hillel student Jewish heritage study tours through Poland!

Take your students on an unforgettable journey

Please join us on a life-changing educational immersion experience in Jewish Poland. 

The Taube Center is a proud partner with Hillel International’s Alternative Break program!

We have organized interactive journeys through Jewish Poland, past and present, for student groups since 2013, through our Taube Jewish Heritage Tour program.

Each tour is created in cooperation with the Hillel professional to develop an engaging and meaningful educational experience that stays with the participants long after they return to campus.  They often return empowered with renewed interest in Jewish life, taking on active roles in the student community.

Our unique educational approach introduces the students to the 1,000 years of Polish life through today’s growing Jewish communities as we explore the past, memorialize the loss, and celebrate the present.

Each program, a seminar on wheels, is developed with the Hillel professional to ensure that the itinerary meets the specific expectations and news of the students.  A  sample itinerary includes visits:

  • POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews

  • Okopowa, one of the oldest and largest Jewish cemeteries in Europe


  • Traces the former Warsaw Ghetto 


  • Krakow’s Medieval Old Town


  • Kazimierz, Krakow’s Jewish district including the Remuh Synagogue Cemetery

  • An extended visit through the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum

  • Wieliczka Salt Mine
