OU-JLIC is partnering with Germany Close Up to offer a subsidized group trip to Germany for Jewish college students and young professionals. The 9-day program between May 31st and June 8th (starting in the US on May 30th) will expose participants to Berlin’s multicultural life; allow them to visit sites such as a former concentration camp, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe and the Jewish Museum in Berlin, and to experience other key historical sites and cultural venues. Participants of the trip will meet with German opinion-makers from the academic and political spheres, representatives of grass roots movements and the Jewish community, as well as German contemporaries.
