Eighth Grade Trip to New Orleans
Our obligation to repair the world is a powerful idea, but what does it actually look like in practice? We’ll travel together to New Orleans, a city that is still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Together, we’ll explore the root causes of poverty in the city and understand why the storm took such a disproportionate toll on its most vulnerable citizens. Then, we’ll join forces with those who are helping to revitalize and rebuild by participating in volunteer projects throughout the city. Of course, no trip to New Orleans would be complete without a trip to the French Quarter, or enjoying beignets at Café Du Monde, or listening to some of the greatest jazz musicians in the world—all of the things that make the Big Easy one of the most fun and unique cities in the country.
The Eighth Grade trip to New Orleans info session will be on 10/28 at Anshai Torah from 12:00-12:30 PM
Tenth Grade Trip to New York
For thousands and thousands of Jewish families, New York City is the place where their American journey began. Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty were the first sights our great grandparents took in as they arrived in a new city and a new country--one that would become home to the biggest and most successful Jewish community in the history of the diaspora. We’ll see these amazing sights through their eyes and follow in their in footsteps on a tour of city’s most important historic Jewish places and neighborhoods. We’ll sample some of the best kosher food on the planet and celebrate Shabbat in the vibrant, creative synagogues that are leading the way in revitalizing Jewish spirituality. And, of course, our nights in the “city that never sleeps,” will be unforgettable, as we enjoy the unique sights and entertainment and that you can only experience in the Big Apple.
The Tenth Grade to trip to New York info session will be on 11/11 at Anshai Torah from 12:00-12:30 PM

A trip to Israel will follow as we trace our people’s journey from near extinction to redemption.
