- Meet the small but vibrant Jewish communities of Sarajevo and Zagreb, and get an inside look at the programs and young leaders in JDC’s Junction Europe Network.
- Learn about the JDC-founded WHEP (Women Health Empowerment Program), which serves women’s health needs in Bosnia & Herzegovina and has since become the independent organization, Think Pink.
- See one of the world’s oldest Sephardic illuminated haggadot — the Sarajevo Haggadah, and visit historic Jewish landmarks throughout Bosnia & Croatia.

“I had an incredible time in Bosnia and Croatia! I was very touched by the Sarajevo community’s warmth and inclusion. I also enjoyed exploring my Jewish identity somewhere else in the world — it made me feel connected to global Jewishness!”
