On the occasion of its 95th anniversary, AMIT is planning a mission to Poland and Israel in May. The trip will showcase AMIT’s many accomplishments and offer an opportunity to meet Israeli celebrities, journalists, business leaders, students and artists during an itinerary brimming with culture, arts, food, athletics, high-tech and more.
Participants will choose from four tracks — Tech and Innovation, Culture and Arts, Dynamic Outdoors, and Foodie — and further customize their experience to focus on their interests.
In addition to activities in Israel from May 14 to 19, AMIT is offering an optional three-day pre-mission Poland heritage tour. Visits to Warsaw, Lublin, Treblinka, Majdanek, Auschwitz, Schindler’s Factory, and other sites will underscore the miraculous Jewish trajectory from past tragedy to present-day prosperity.
“From seeing our exceptional schools where we will showcase innovation and AMIT’s ability to nurture our students to excellence, to enjoying new and exciting Israeli venues and activities, to meeting special guests, celebrities, and some surprises, this trip will be unforgettable,” said Mission Chair Anne Golombeck.
