Welcome to traveljewish.com – home to travel with a Jewish twist!

We organize Jewish Day Tours, Jewish Group Trips, and provide trip planning assistance.

We began in 2000 out of Buenos Aires and have since grown to include destinations around the globe!

One of our favorite tours is Adventures in Art; we invite our guests to meet local, nationally recognized Jewish artists at their private studios. We find the more creative the connection to local Jewish community, the richer!

Please be in touch if we can help you plan a trip to, say, Barcelona, Buenos Aires, or Berlin!  

Happy Trails!

Our Day Tours

We'd like to help you get connected to your destination, meaningfully. We appreciate your visit to our website featuring a small sampling of our day tours and destinations. 

 

Group Tours

Small Group Tours & What I love about BA.

What I love about BA is the people, the food, and the customs around taking time to take time.

Portenyos (“people from the Port”) tend towards a dry sense of humor, boast a wonderful food tradition (with heavy Italian influence, one of my personal favorite food traditions) and relish coming together and being with their loved ones regularly. It is a heavily nocturnal culture.

Argentina is country that understands that family and friendships are to be celebrated and its people spend time spending time together. 

Meals are long and savored. Weddings go on through the night until the morning. 

Fashion, physique and self-image are not trivial matters and, while it’s a casual one, the runway in Buenos Aires is alive and kicking on every street corner.

So how does a tourist tap into what’s ultimately a private celebration among a country’s citizens (and also dress for the occasion)?

Our proposal is to connect an intimate group of travelers with a local host and activity leaders that share their love for country and community, and invite you into the stories that make up the fabric of this human quilt.

And, because we are particularly fond of sharing the Jewish threads of that story, we emphasize doorways into past influences of today’s story.

What was it like coming up in a country, largely of immigrants, at a time that wasn’t particularly philo-Semitic.

What is like to live as part of a Jewish community in a Catholic country?

How did the loss of democracy in Argentina during the Dirty War impact the Jewish community?

There are so many stories to share – please come join us for them!

And don’t forget to book time to do as the portenyos do: sit at corner café and people watch and sip your café con leche

Tango & The City

This Buenos Aires Urban Adventure is a multi-day traveljewish group trip!

Join us for an exceptional travel experience as we explore the splendid nuances of Buenos Aires, have a taste of her more classic traditions, and connect personally to the people living here.

A fantastic tradition in Buenos Aires, and a prominent feature of this urban adventure taking place in Buenos Aires, is, but of course, “el tango.”

An appreciation for the romance of this sensual dance form will be offered via opportunities to attend performances, group (and if desired, private) instruction, and to watch locals show off their stuff.

traveljewish takes mealtime seriously, and one of several gastronomic highlights on our itinerary includes an evening of wine sampling of the local vino and a memorable meal at one of Buenos Aires’ oldest wine clubs. Argentina is the famed country of Meat, as you probably have heard, but vegetarians, fret not, as we’re looking forward to taking good care of you, too.

As a complement to your dining and dancing activities, join us as we explore both the famous and hidden delights of this heavily European-influenced city. We’ll provide insights on history, art, & architecture via walking tours and museum jaunts. From the historic Plaza de Mayo to boating on the famous Rio de la Plata, you’ll get a behind the scenes tour without the touristy flavor!

On Friday night, get ready for a fabuloso Shabbat gathering hosted by a local chef. Shabbat evening services are optional at a local community.

Looking forward to hosting you!

Interview to Deb (traveljewish) from Deb, Builder (Jewish Adventures)

 

Deb (Jewish Adventures)Why traveljewish?

Deb (traveljewish): Simply, I am fascinated by the opportunity to celebrate Jewish community. By matching Jewish travelers with Jewish locals and their history, I feel I get to play a privileged role in bridging our global Jewish community together, providing what is hopefully a memorable travel & life experience.
When I moved to Buenos Aires in 1999, the opportunity presented itself to do be a connector of guests and locals, and I did so by creating walking tours of (Jewish) Buenos Aires for guests who sought a personalized visit with a local host.

Deb (Jewish Adventures): What's the one thing you would recommend doing while in Buenos Aires?

Deb (traveljewish): Taking a tango class, visiting Paso synagogue, and having a coffee in the Recoleta neighborhood. Those are three things. 

Deb (Jewish Adventures) : What's your thought on Jewish singles trips?

Deb (traveljewish): I've both attended and hosted and have had the good fortune of meeting truly wonderful people, 
Suggestions: Try to go with a friend, enjoy the journey, and minimize expectations to meet that Special Someone.

Deb (Jewish Adventures): Have travel tips?

Deb (traveljewish): Drink lots of fluids, pack only items that you can afford to lose, confirm your hotel and flight (both ways), and, in my opinion, the scheduling of less is more.

Deb (Jewish Adventures): Your best travel tale?

Deb (traveljewish): Walking into a synagogue in a foreign place and feeling at Home.
