Join Jewtina y Co. and Mitsui Collective for a truly one-of-a-kind Jewish exploration of place, community, and identity across the global Jewish diaspora through the context of five incredible days immersed in the unique beauty, culture, ecology, and history of El Salvador.
This unique program will center the multiracial, multiethnic, and multicultural experience of the global Jewish diaspora. With deep encounter of Central America as the backdrop, we'll guide you both in the exploration of the particular places and communities of El Salvador we'll visit, as well as through your own exploration of personal and ancestral lineage, rootedness, and connection. Along the way, we'll build community with our fellow sojourners as a micro-reflection of the many Jewish communities we are a part of building and sustaining back home, wherever home may be.
