Upcoming Trips Led by Friends of Kulanu
- India: My Second Home
Presented by our friends Nathan Katz and Ellen Goldberg: "India is known for its antiquity and modern high-tech. Spirituality and Bollywood swagger. Bustling cities and pristine nature. A cultural kaleidoscope that's the world's largest democracy. But what's typically not known is India's long history as one of the most hospitable homes in the Jewish diaspora. For centuries, Jews found a haven in which their traditions flourished. So too, they've been among India's great mystics, taken center stage in Bollywood, served as mayors in major cities, and produced the country's greatest military hero, as well as its most celebrated English-language poet."
