4 New Ways To Celebrate Jewish Holidaysby Ben Goodman ***
Jewish travel is heavily influenced by its heritage. It means visiting synagogues and historical places that are significant to their history. It can also mean celebrating Hanukkah and Passover on a nice holiday trip or a river cruise. In the past, Jewish celebrations are typically spent in the comfort of families’ homes but nowadays, there has been a shift in how these are observed. This is thanks to the rise of kosher tours and Jewish cruises.
Here are some ways celebrations and commemorations are celebrated in them:
Travelling with Children
Passover is an eight-day celebration to remember the liberation of the children of Israel from Egypt. It is the perfect time to catch up with the kids on a holiday trip at your most relaxed state. Kids can also learn a lot from educational tours and learn about the different kosher cuisines from around the world. Bond, trust and engagement can also be instilled in your children through fun cooking classes and on-board programming.
Travelling alone is supposed to be a mindful and stress-free experience. According to Google Search, the popularity of travelling solo has skyrocketed primarily because it is expected to clear the mind and prepare the body to take action for major life decisions. There’s also a specific reason why river cruises became popular to solo travellers.
Cruises provide light and friendly environment to strike up a conversation -whether you are looking for love on Rosh Hashanah or a new friend to talk over business ventures. Additionally, it is a great way to find a new set of influence is through off-board programs that facilitate a life-affirming experience.
Travelling Alone: Religious Solo Travel
A particularly popular reason to travel alone on a cruise is to heighten and realign your spirituality. During solemn and vital celebrations (like Sukkot and Yom Kippur), meaningful Shabbat programming is supported. With like-minded Jewish individuals on board, it’s not hard to re-discover and feel unity and growth within oneself. The peaceful scenery by the river also helps lighten the mind and spirit.
Travelling with Friends
Hanukkah and Passover are the best holidays to spend with friends. You can celebrate memorable experiences through various activities from Jewish tours, bike rides, cooking classes to sing-a-longs. Famous land tours also include hidden and off-the-beaten places that showcase authentic Jewish heritage. The accessibility of its local communities makes it an even more memorable experience for small or large groups.
