25/07/19 0:00 - 28/07/19 0:00

Together with the EUROPEAN CENTER FOR JEWISH STUDENTS (ECJS) we have hosted The Summer 2019 event. The event began with a tour of central Madrid including the Bernabeu Stadium, Neptune fountain and Gran Via main street. In the evening guests were lucky to hear from Israel’s Ambassador to Spain as well as a representative from the Israeli Ministry of Strategic Affairs and their fight against the BDS movement. On Friday the day out included a visit to the beautiful city of Toledo and learning about it’s Jewish heritage from before the time of the Inquisition. Participants got to enjoy a refreshing and relaxing Shabbat in the hotel, before visiting the Madrid Synagogue on the Sunday to learn about the city’s Jewish community.
