Fascinating Cities for your Future Kosher Vacations

by Kosher River Cruise Kosher Tour Operator
While it’s ill-advised to travel far and wide in today’s climate, planning for future kosher vacations is one way to remind yourself that there is a tomorrow. While we won’t pretend that there are plenty of issues related to the current pandemic at the moment (economic paralysis, unemployment, general anxiety, etc.), planning for the future can help kindle a hope for a time that will come eventually. Now, what are some great places for a future kosher expedition?

Avignon, France

Avignon is a city in south-eastern France, along the banks of the Rhone River in the Provence region. This was the site of the Avignon Papacy and a Papal Palace from where they ruled. During a time of Jewish expulsion in certain parts of France, Avignon became a place of refuge under certain popes, to the point that there lies an intact synagogue and Jewish quarter in the city. They participated in trade in a limited fashion and helped the economy of their foster city. 

Porto, Portugal

Porto City

Porto, Portugal is a beautiful coastal city that forms around the mouth of the Douro River, leading into the fertile Douro Valley Region of Portugal. This city is known for its great World Heritage sites and its unique Porto wine. It is also known for its Jewish heritage, as evident by the large Kadoorie Mekor Haim synagogue and the various other reminders of a Sephardic Jewish presence in the city. There are also plenty of other Jewish heritage sites along the Douro, so if you want an alternative to kosher resorts for when it's safe to travel again, why not join a Jewish heritage tour along the Douro?
