Join JDC Ambassadors on a tour of Eastern Europe’s dynamic and resilient Jewish communities- on two wheels!  We will be cycling from Hungary to Romania with Kenes Tours and making a special side trip to Camp Szarvas, the international Jewish summer camp that has been proclaimed by thousands of campers, “the happiest place on Earth.”

Trip co-chairs: Ellen and Frank Hagelberg and Gary Zimmerman
