  • Jewish Museums of North Americ Jewish Museums of North America

    • From: laurierappeport
    • Description:

       

      The Jewish population of the United States stands at barely 3% of America's total residents but the community has been an intergral part of the American landscape since Colonial times. Throughout the country museums, small and large, exist which attest to the unique role that Jews see for themselves in America and their commitment to their heritage.

      Wherever I travel I try to search out Jewish museums. Every region gives its own flavor to the American Jewish experience and by observing them I enjoy the opportunity to see the American Jewish world in all is diversity.

      Jewish Museum of Oregon

      In the mid-1800s the German Jewish immigration to American began to gain momentum. Most of these immigrants settled along the East Coast but some adventurous pioneers moved westward. In 1849  two German Jewish immigrants traveled to Oregon and settled in the frontier town of Portland. By 1853 enough additional Jewish men had arrived in the town to create the need for a boardinghouse for Jewish bachelors and  the Jewish community continued to expand.

       

      Today Portland has a vibrant Jewish community. The Jewish Museum of Oregon traces the Jewish presence in the northeast with a wide range of exhibits that help you appreciate the sacrifices that the early Jewish settlers made to come and live in the Pacific Northwest. The museum houses a large archive that contains documents, photos and artifacts that document the Jewish immigration and settlement in the region. You can also listen to some of the old-timers whose memories are recorded via the museum's  oral history program.  

       

      Modern Portland Jewish history is on display via temporary exhibits which display Judaica and elements of Jewish culture and tradition. These exhibits are not necessarily unique to Oregon, but their inclusion in the museum ensures that the exhibits meet the needs of present-day visitors for Jewish information. Films, concerts and lectures are scheduled throughout the year -- the website provides information about these events.

       

       

      Jewish Museum of Charleston

      It may seem incongruous to have a full-blown, high quality Jewish museum in a city with a miniscule Jewish population but 200 years ago there were more Jews in Charleston than in almost any other American colony. Charleston is the historical home of one of North America's first Jewish communities. The Charter of South Carolina, written in 1669, granted liberty of conscience to all residents, specifically noting "Jews, heathens, and dissenters." Spanish, Portuguese and Dutch Jews saw Charleston as a haven where they could  live freely as Jews. Charleston was a center of Jewish life until well into the 20th century and a congregation still remains.

       

      The Jewish Museum of Charleston displays a wide range of exhibits that explore Jewish culture, showing how Jews celebrated and commemorated holidays and rituals hundreds of years ago till today. The museum's permanent exhibition -- Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey examines the Jewish experience of the last 4000 years as it is perceived through various art forms. The display area presents a diverse collection of archaeological objects, ceremonial implements, photographs, videos and interactive media that offers an overview of the American Jewish experience.

       

      The museum is located in the Kahal Kadosh synagogue. Kahal Kadosh was built in 1749 to serve the Sephardic (Spanish and Portuguese) Jews. It became one of America's first Reform Temples when the changing demographics of the Charleston Jewish community created a need for change in the mid 1800s.  The Museum traces the history of this evolution as well as of the Reform reinterpretation of Jewish traditions, the interaction of Jewish community of Charleston with other cultures and the impact that these historical events have had on American Jewish life.

       

      Breman Jewish Heritage Museum

      There are Holocaust Museums all over the world but the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, located in Atlanta Georgia, tells the story of the Holocaust by exploring the lives of over 400 survivors who made their way to Georgia and Alabama after the war.

       

      Using documents, photos and biographical details of the survivors the museum demonstrates the progression of the Holocaust years, starting with the persecutions and moving on to the ghettos, the concentration camps and, for very few, final freedom.

       

      Holocaust survivors that made their way to the southern United States have become successful and valued members of their communities. These people gave their time, money and memories to  the museum to contribute to Holocaust education in their community. Probably the most moving part of the museum involved the survivors' stories which personalized the exhibit in a way that photos and documents can never achieve. The Breman museum adds a great deal to the public's knowledge and understanding of the Holocaust.

        

      Milken Archives of Jewish Music

      The Los Angeles-based Milken Archives of Jewish Music was created by the Milken Foundation as a resource through which the history and the evolution of American Jewry can be traced by examining Jewish American liturgy and music. Beginning with data that documents the 17th century Sephardic Jews who arrived from Brazil, the Archive documents the unique songs and chants that are associated with American Jewish history.

       

      The first Jews in America were of Spanish and Portuguese origin. After they escaped the Inquisition they moved to Holland and from Holland they joined the expeditions to the New World. When Portugal conquered Brazil from Holland and brought the Inquisition to South America the Jews fled northward to the new American colonies. They brought their Iberian traditions and Sephardic culture with them and early American Jewish worship was characterized by Sephardic melodies and liturgy.

       

      German Jews began to immigrate to America in the mid-1800s. Some synagogues incorporated the new German customs, including those of the German-based Reform denomination, into their services. By the late 1800s a great immigration that would eventually encompass over 2 million Eastern European Jews was underway -- this wave laid the groundwork for an American Jewish community that, until today, is mostly Ashkanazic. The Milken Archives has created recordings that trace each of these groups through their prayers, especially Ashkanazi cantorial music. As a researcher who is interested in American Jewish history, I found numerous helpful resources and materials available at the Archives. The Archives also offer these resources online.

  • 10 Luxury Family Holiday Desti 10 Luxury Family Holiday Destinations 2014

    • From: dharmender
    • Description:

      As travel to the four corners of the world has become more accessible, an abundance of choice has been created for the family traveller. Yet at the same time as the globe opens up, the options available for a rarefied experience narrow. 

      For family holiday makers in search of luxury, the chance to provide their children with culturally rich excursions that expand their world view are proving to be key drivers in determining choice. To help, here is a list of ten destinations that offer children and adults alike the chance to indulge in the luxury of experience in the maximum of comfort. 

      Barbados 

      The culture the exotic island of Barbados is defined by is its West African, British and Indian historical legacy. This ensures that cricket, afternoon tea and Christianity remain staple passions of the local Bajans, who need no excuse to proudly boast of the fact that there are more churches than bars on the island. 

      The aesthetic too is shaped by this legacy, as the old stone churches and sugar plantations characterise the scenery of this Caribbean gem as much as the glorious white sandy beaches and dreamy ocean views. In terms of luxury hotels, Sandy Lane provides a plethora of activities and facilities to cater for every family need. 
       

      Dubai 

      As recently as 20 years ago, Dubai as we know it simply didn’t exist. Now, however, it’s a bustling ever-changing metropolis set in the heart of the Persian Gulf. A destination of complete opposites, the tranquillity of the desert close by provides a taste of traditional Arabia that is of stark contrast to the ultra-modern shopping malls and extravagant opulence found in the city. 

      Excursions and activities for the whole family are integrated into Dubai’s vibrant tourist economy. For example, one of the most expensive and extravagant hotels found anywhere in the world, the Burj al Arab, now runs the the Jumeirah project; a turtle rehabilitation programme that in its final stage allows children to release the reinvigorated reptiles back into the sea. 

      Egypt 

      Since the dawn of its ancient civilisation Egypt is a country that has been synonymous with luxury. And with its wide range of world class hotels and facilities, this statement is as true today as it ever was. 

      For family travellers looking to indulge into the rich history of Egypt, the city of Luxor provides the ideal central location to plan your adventures from, with the Valley of the Kings nearby. Similarly, as Egypt is home to two of the Seven Wonders of the World in the form of The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Lighthouse of Alexandria, the timeless options for families in search of cultural enrichment are plentiful. 

      France 

      From the romance of Paris right through to the mountainous vistas of the Alps, France is home to a rich and varied landscape. In terms of culture, food and drink is central to the way of life. Therefore France is the perfect country to refine the palette of young and old, with dynamic markets, top class restaurants and hidden eateries aplenty.      

      The Evian resort, just 3km away from the gorgeous Lake Geneva on the Swiss border, provides a fantastic family choice regarding accommodation. For more information on the Evian resort and the activities on offer there, visitwww.totstoo.com/destinations. An additional consideration for those with a very young family intent on embarking on a foreign holiday is the relatively short travel times between the UK and destinations in France. 

      Italy 

      An expedition to Italy offers families a varied spectrum of classical ruins, impressive architecture and fine food, that as a collective represent an amalgamation of culture and history which any place in the world will struggle to compete with. 

      Venice and Florence are just two of many cities that offer a multitude of iconic and beautiful experiences. Whilst Lake Garda which resides within the foothills of the beautiful Dolomites, presents a package of gorgeous hotels, stunning scenery and outdoor pursuits to satisfy even the most demanding of luxury family holiday makers. 

      The United Kingdom 

      For those families with a large brood, travelling abroad in search of a luxury experience can be a daunting and stressful experience. This is why many are choosing keep their holiday plans restricted to local shores, as destinations can be reached simply by jumping in a car or on a train. 

      Rural escapes like the Yorkshire Moors, the Cotswolds and the Jurassic Coast provide rugged and beautiful landscapes full of adventure and opportunity for exploration. Furthermore, cities such as London and Liverpool offer vibrant, multicultural environments that provide an illustration of what defines modern Britain.  

      Seychelles 

      Even though the land mass is small, the Seychelles landscape is diverse, encompassing mountains, tropics, coral islands and  isolated beaches that are the epitome of paradise. For tourists that hold nature close to their hearts, the islands are home to the world renownedCousin Island Special Reserve, a national park teeming with wildlife that is famed for its approach to conservation and eco-tourism. 

      As tourism is the lifeblood of the island, there is a number of beautiful and facility laden hotels and resorts optimised for family comfort. All things considered, the Seychelles offers a unique opportunity for families to explore and absorb the rarest of things; paradise on earth. 

      Finnish Lapland 

      It’s not just the prospect of seeing Father Christmas that makes Finnish Lapland a magical family holiday prospect. Situated near the Arctic Circle, the country is one of the few places on earth that is ideal for viewing the spectacular skies that the Northern Lights produce. 

      Surrounded by amazing alpine surrounding, Hotel Kakslauttanen presents the perfect winter bolthole complete with a range of family-centric activities nearby. These include snow rides led by both huskies and reindeers that traverse icy roads and a possible visit toSanta’s resort.

      It goes without saying that for the best experience families should visit during the festive period, and although this will be expensive, children will be provided with an experience they will never forget. 

      Oman 

      Sweeping deserts and idyllic coastlines provide the unadulterated beauty that has seen Oman fittingly referred to as the Jewell of Arabia. Juxtaposing modernity and tradition the country of Oman delivers a holiday experience that is unique to anywhere in the world. Although because of the extreme heat experienced in the summer months, the best time to visit Oman is between October and March. 

      The influx of wealth to the country has ensured that holidaymakers are able to enjoy access to an innumerable range of world-class, child-friendly facilities, which include resorts, shopping districts, attractions and hotels that cater for every family need conceivable. The most accessible part of the Oman coast resides near the capital of Muscat, where there is the opportunity to embark on dolphin watching tours that will cast each generation in a state of awe and provide an unforgettable experience.  

      Greece 

      For children who are old enough to appreciate it, a visit to Greece offers the chance to appreciate the uniquely rich cultural heritage of a country that has shaped much of what continues to define western civilisation. 

       

      Made up of over 2,000 islands, Greece includes golden sandy beaches, seafront taverns and amazing hotels, including Westin Resort Costa Navarino. From here families can engage in water sports and other activities, as well as using it as a hub for nearby excursions which take in the countries rich historical legacy.

  • 9 Stunning Landscapes of Vietn 9 Stunning Landscapes of Vietnam

    • From: activetravelasia
    • Description:
      At just three percent of the land mass of the United States, what most surprised me during our time in Vietnam was the diversity of the scenery. From white sand beaches and turquoise water to black rock forests and mountains that hug the clouds, here are some of the most amazing landscapes we came across.
      With a coastline of over 2025 miles, it's no surprise that Vietnam has a ton of beautiful beaches. And when the rest stop during your bus trip looks like this, you don't have much to complain about.
      Rest stops in Vietnam are sometimes on beautiful beaches
      The biggest beach destination in Vietnam is likely the town of Nha Trang, which boasts all day boat tours and all night parties. If you're missing Miami while in SE Asia, this is the closest we found. The beach in the main town is pretty nice, but the offshore islands are where you want to head if you're looking to snorkel or dive. With perfect visibility, good quality coral, and thousands of multicolored fish flitting about, having a great day is easy, especially since the all day island-hopping tour costs approximately $6.
      Great beach for snorkeling near Nha Trang
      But Vietnam's coastline isn't all sparkling white sand and clear blue water. Our favorite coastal landscape was the sand dunes around Mui Ne, which come in both red and white varieties. Whether you jump, run, or slide, it's hard not to let the beauty of the dunes overwhelm you. Stretching for what seems like miles, the dunes are something you'd expect to find in Africa. Instead, they're here, only a few minutes away from one of the best places in the world to learn to kitesurf.
      Red sand dunes of Mui Ne
      Most countries with a coastline have beaches, but they don't all have rice terraces, especially ones that look like this.
      Rice terraces of Sapa
      The terraces in Sapa were carved over two thousand years ago by hand and are still inhabited primarily by the Black Hmong tribespeople. These mountain dwellers live off the land, planting and harvesting rice year in and year out in order to sustain their families.
      A Black Hmong man takes a break from working in the rice terraces outside of Sapa
      Tourists can explore the terraces by taking a multiday trekking tour with a Hmong guide. You'll stay in homestays run by the local villagers, get knee deep in mud, and appreciate rice way more than you ever have.
      Wide view of Sapa's rice terraces
      Further north and to the east of Sapa lies the unexplored Vietnam of the Ha Giang province. You need a permit to stay the night and a camera with lots of battery power to take all of the photos of the immense scenery that surrounds you as you drive by on your motorbike. The most beautiful part of the road, and arguably one of the most beautiful drives in the world, is the leg between Dong Van and Meo Vac. Here the road darts in and out of rock crevices and up and down mountains and valleys.
      Windy road in Northern Vietnam
      Children in traditional tribal outfits scream "hello" from above and below as they carry double their weight of sticks in bamboo baskets. Men wear high-necked black tunics and matching berets and women wrap electric pink scarves over their hair, giving the game of "I Spot" a whole new meaning.
      Rock forest in Northern Vietnam
      Perhaps the most quintessential scene of Vietnam is the floating limestone karst formations of Halong Bay. Best seen on a multi-day boat tour, these rocks rise out of the still water and emerge through the mist forming, if you look hard enough, the shape of a descending dragon. At least that's what the locals tell you, and how Halong Bay gets its name. Kayaking through some of these formations is a must, as is sitting back on your boat tour and letting the scenery and mist envelop you.

Langtang, Gosainkunda and Helambu are independent treks on their own but they can be combined to make treks from one week to 15 days long . With our experience, we prefer to offer Langtang and Gosainkunda trek combined for the best  experience. For the Langtang region we peovide Langtang Valley Trekking, Langtang Gosaikunda Trek Langtang Valley and Ganja La Pass Trekking Tamang Heritage Trail Trekking.This area is also popular for peak Climbing.
