If we ever get back to Barcelona I will definitely use Barcelona Dreaming to guide us through that beautiful country and, of course, I will ask for you” “Just a few lines to let you know that the tour on Sept 10 was very interesting and “Adi” your tour guide was very knowledgeable and responsive. These folks made us feel like “natives” of the City and we want to come back and spend more time with them. To me time with Barcelona Dreaming is Time well spent.” “We were on the cruise ship for 13 days after it left Barcelona. Adi was great and we got a lot of information and sense of our Jewish root in Barcelona. Thank you” “I just want to thank you for a truly interesting tour.
The personal flavor of the walking tour was just great, and I really got to appreciate what a beautiful city Barcelona is â€“ I have no doubt I got to see a side of Barcelona I would not have seen otherwise, and from a Jewish perspective, the tour of the Jewish quarter was just so informative.
Mitch grew up in a religious Jewish family, but felt there was a distance between him and God.
The bullying in school got to a point of where I would come home and just cry because of the abuse I endured, even from teachers.
My parents would come to school to speak with the teachers but it would just make the situation worse. Children would chase me, throw fireworks at me and call me derogatory names.
A deal “gone bad” at which they were almost killed changed Mitch’s perspective on life.
It was around this time that one of his friends became a follower of Jesus.
For us it is a “living memory” because to remember the Holocaust is not enough.
We need to remember people who are still alive and many times they need us in they problems and needs.Growing up in a small town in Ukraine as a Jewish child was extremely painful.My classmates tormented and bullied me for simply being Jewish.They people survived the hell of the Holocaust in their life.Another direction in this ministry, which we feel God called us to, is a step towards the needs of the Holocaust survivors from the former Soviet Union. Our heart’s desire is not only to remember them, but also to help them in a practical way.The event is supported by the Ukrainian Jewish Encounter.
