The people we meet
Behind-the-scenes stories about the people we meet along the way.
The “Hallelujah” exhibition in Tel Aviv’s Beit Hatfutsot museum
Showcases creativity and renaissance through the multifaceted lens of the synagogue. In the same spirit as this exhibit, Da’at and ARZA World take travelers to Israel and worldwide on a fascinating journey of discovery and exploration, celebrating the resilience and diversity of the Jewish people.
We identify with the progressive Jewish values of equality, democracy, and pluralism. ARZA World was born out of a desire to promote, share, and support these values. What does that mean? We have created and customized hundreds of Jewish trips over the years that not only express the values and goals of the Reform movement but support those efforts financially. When you travel with ARZA World, part of our profits goes toward supporting the Reform movement. It’s an essential part of our story. It’s why we exist.
Whether you want to plan a trip for your congregation, journey solo, or celebrate a special event with family and friends, we will listen and craft a Reform trip that is perfect for you. We believe that a Reform travel experience should nurture meaningful connections – with people and places. Our purpose is to create travel experiences that are so transformative that you will only want to travel this way.
There are many reasons to travel the Reform way. Rabbi Rick Jacobs, president of the URJ, explains why it is so important to experience Jewish trips and journey to Israel and the Jewish world as a community. “There are always 100 reasons not to do something important. It’s too expensive…we could go on a Disney cruise…we could install a new kitchen in our house. A trip to Israel is not a vacation. You go to Israel because it literally reminds you what life is about.”
Featured Jewish group tours.
We are almost 30 years old yet are still finding new places to get excited about. Our journeys to over 20 destinations around the world – from Israel to Europe to Morocco to Russia to the Far East – all tell the story of the Jewish people in motion.
