The group visits the Warsaw Ghetto wall, the Warsaw cemetery, the Shoe Memorial, the Chasam Sofer’s Kever, the Vienna Holocaust Memorial, the Gur cemetery and more. They will also be heading to Reb Shayala’s Kever in Hungary.

The tour is being led by the Rov, Harav Heshy Schwartz.

  1. What’s the purpose of publicising these trips to us readers? Spiritual endeavors are meant to be done quietly between us & the Ribono Shel Olom, as stated by the Chazon Ish in Emunah & Bitochon. Let’s all return to a life of privacy & reflection rather than externalizing our ruchnius on social media. The Chazon Ish would say that all pirsum is mazik.Chazal teach us that brocha is found in that which is kept private.

    • @Seichel Hayoshor, You’re right on a personal level, but for TLS readers it’s good to see that there is way to connect with our history, draw inspiration from, and for some it’s a beacon of light when they get to connect with Hashem through our mekomos hakdoshim of yesteryear. It’s our past but still relatable, connectable, inspiring. People should go. People should connect. People should come back refreshed with chizuk, aspirations, and hopefully with oisgepiolt yeshuos.
