Last week more than 150 Jewish young adults from 14 countries across Europe joined ECJS for an incredible Jewish experience in exotic Istanbul. Participants learnt about Turkish Jewish heritage from 1400 CE and beyond; through visits to numerous Synagogues and the Jewish Museum, as well as experiencing first hand Turkish culture in both the Hagia Sophia Mosque and the famous Grand Bazaar. On Thursday, the group also celebrated Lag B’Omer with a traditional BBQ experience; and then continued this beautiful atmosphere over Shabbat, with interesting workshops alongside the traditional fun large group Shabbat meals and singing.
