Kayitz is an incredible eight day tour of Andalusia, Spainfor anyone in Year 12. Starting in Granada, the group travels to Cordoba and ends the trip in Seville, learning about amazing Sephardic Jewish history, enjoying huge amounts of Kef, and of course, lots of pool time!
“I loved seeing all of the beautiful Spanish cities and immersing myself in the culture. To be able to be educated about Sefardic history and understand how important it is for Jewish history as a whole. It really opened my eyes to the untold experiences and has made me curious to learn more. Also the people I was with really made the trip what it was. Everyone was so engaged and made it a space where we could all learn from each other which is something invaluable. I have so enjoyed just being within an LJY environment and learning more about what it stands for and Kayitz has enabled me to embrace all of it.”Kayitz 2023
Kayitz Sepharad begins in Granada, a city which housed the most flourishing Jewish community of the 10th century.
The symbol of the Pomegranate fruit is present throughout the city, a reminder of its Jewish influences, alongside the many other cultures that once flourished there.
The group will visit the Alhambra Palace, peruse around a fantastic science museum, eat Tapas, and begin to delve into Spain's magical Jewish past.
Our next stop is Cordoba, where Kayitz will continue our educational journey with a healthy dose of relaxation by the pool.
The group will visit the Jewish Quarter and old Synagogue, following the legacy of great thinkers from centuries past, including Moorish intellectuals and Maimonades. We will embark on a tour of the beautiful Mezquita de Cordoba which, as a cathedral-built-on-a-mosque-on-a-chapel that showcases the intersection of intricate Islamic and Spanish Catholic architectural styles.
The last stop on Kayitz Sepharad is Seville, where the group will visit the beautiful gardens and learn about Jewish Seville. We will also have a day trip to Cadiz and have a walking tour of Seville. There will then be a day trip to Agua Magica, a waterpark in Seville, where Kayitz can splash to their hearts content and ride thrilling coasters!!
All the while we will draw upon Jewish historical links and reflect upon the journey we have taken, spending time together as a community and experiencing our LJY and Jewish identity in new ways.
