STILL TRAVELING

Presented by the OMJCC / National JCC Adult & Senior Alliance.  

Would you like to still travel? Now you can without leaving your home – just stay still!  Let us whisk you away for an "armchair adventure" on an interesting, educational, fun & live, guided group tour in a destination beyond your front door ..even beyond the grocery store!  Forget the long, masked airplane ride, we take you across the time zones by Zoom where a local professional guide from a distant destination will take us to explore sites or topics. Live Q&A, photos, graphics & video clips (when available) will transport us to the destination!

Still Traveling: Morocco More than Marrakech on Mondays, May 3, 10, 24 & 31 (no “trip” on 5/17) from 2-3:15pm (EDT) on Zoom

Many visitors go to Morocco to visit its most famous city, Marrakech. But, the country holds countless interesting treasures throughout the land from its coasts to its deserts!  Pour yourself a cup of mint tea and let James Sokol zoom you away on our virtual “trips” to this magical North African country, so different from most Arab-dominant countries. Morocco has its own unique, fascinating culture – a blend of indigenous Berber, Arabian, Sub-Saharan African & European (Christian & Jewish) influences. Join our wonderful, local guide for visits around his diverse and vibrant country to discover wonders that await!  For details & tickets, click here. 


Still Traveling: Haunted Broadway on Monday, May 3rd from  5-6:15pm (ET) on Zoom 

On National Paranormal Day, let our JCC colleague James Sokol zoom you to Times Square for a truly spooky adventure. After the thousands of audience members leave the 41 Broadway theaters, a nightly ritual takes place unseen by most: the setting of the ghost-light. Join our guide, a “walking encyclopedia of Broadway,” to explore this, and other superstitions rooted in days gone by, but still held by theatre folk everywhere. Learn stories of spirits that still lurk in the shadows backstage and some truly spooky sightings: acrobats, costume designers, playwrights, actors, and even a priest! See how the haunted of Broadway's present brings Broadway's past back to life! For details & tickets, click here.


 

Still Traveling: Neglected Napoli on Mondays, June 7, 14, 21, 28  from 2-3:15pm (EDT) on Zoom

Capital of the province of Campania and third largest city in Italy, Napoli (re: Naples) has been overlooked by many visitors for years.  Some thought it was dangerous, others heard it was uninteresting.
