Kayitz is a tour created for everyone in Year 12 to travel around Europe learning and experiencing the Jewish Diaspora story. This is a great chance to have fun with friends in three different countries.
“Kayitz is by far one of the most enriching and fun experiences I’ve ever been lucky enough to have. I was exposed to so much culture and history in the most enjoyable way possible”Kayitz 2018
Kayitz Keren will start in the coastal city of Split, reenacting the arrival of Sephardi Jews and exploring what it means to be a diaspora Jew in Europe. Visiting the historic synagogue, exploring the ruins of Diocletian's palace and the nearby Roman town of Salona, and swimming in the beautiful Adriatic will start the trip perfectly.
Bosnia & Herzegovina
The next stop is Mostar before travelling to the fascinating city of Sarajevo. Here, Kayitz explores the rich history of religious and cultural diversity that has earned Sarajevo the nickname “Jerusalem of Europe”. Shop in the bustling markets, stand where the course of history changed, and explore the Jewish role across the centuries.
On route to Vienna, we visit Jasenovac Concentration Camp and learn about our more recent history. In Vienna, you will visit historic cafes and sites that mark the strong Jewish influence from Freud to Mahler on Europe and beyond. From grand synagogues and cathedrals, art galleries and museums, there is something for everyone. Evenings in Vienna are a highlight of Kayitz and on the last night discover the thrills of the Vienna Fun Fair!
