A trip to Egypt is an invitation to amazing, travel to a place with ancient treasures, temples, marketplaces, and the valleys where the pharaohs roamed. Cruise down the Nile and experience stress reducing luxury. And for the ultimate memorable experience, visit the new Grand Egyptian Museum and the Giza Pyramids, counted among the largest structures ever built.

INSIDE OUT. JEWISH EGYPT.

Welcome to Egypt. We often associate the country with Jews leaving and the Exodus. But as you’ll see while on your journey, it is also a place where many Jews chose to settle over the centuries and where they built a remarkable community. Visit the Maimonides Synagogue that has existed in the area since the 10th century and the Ben Ezra Synagogue where a collection of some 400,000 Jewish manuscript fragments and Fatimid administrative documents were kept in the genizah or storeroom. Take time to meet with local Moslem Egyptians who are trying to preserve the countries Jewish heritage. Gain a better understanding of why Egypt is considered to be an important Arab country, and a regional power that is distinguished by its strategic importance.
