Streicker attracts some of the most renowned figures in American politics, art, law and entertainment. So spend an evening with a president or secretary of state, or serve on the jury at a mock trial of the Biblical Noah, with Alan Dershowitz serving as prosecutor. Meet your favorite author, debate the most challenging issues of our day with prominent journalists, enjoy fantastic music and sample how today’s chefs are reimagining your favorite foods. New ideas. Unique performances. The cutting edge of Jewish culture.
At Streicker, we’ve brought the cheder out of the shtetl and into the 21st century. At our Skirball Academy, you can explore the sublime, sample the unusual and brush up on the practical. Held in the afternoons and evenings, classes are taught by expert authors, professors and learned rabbinical scholars.
Traveling with the Streicker Center doesn’t just offer fascinating landscapes and landmarks, fine hotels, great food and terrific guides. Each of our journeys is also carefully designed to provide you with unique insight into Jewish history and/or life, the opportunity to meet with members of the local community and an experience in the warmth of the Streicker Center family. We’ve already explored Jewish Cuba and Morocco, the culinary scene in Israel, Jewish history in Italy and joined the March of the Living in Poland and Israel. You are invited to join us on our next adventure.
