*This is not a tour, but a presentation I will be giving from home using various visual aids. My mother passed away from cancer in 2012. As her memorial day is coming, I thought it would be nice to share her story. My mother was born in Morocco to a Sephardic family, Jews that were expelled from Spain centuries earlier, following the Spanish Reconquista in 1492. I will contextualize her personal story to the general history of the Sephardic Jewry in the last 500 years - from Spain to modern Israel.

Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Jerusalem with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 60 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Jerusalem. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.
We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to join, but you have the option to leave a tip during the tour.
The majority of your tip goes directly to support the channel, while the rest helps Heygo continue to build a place that brings the world closer together.
Reserve your spot by selecting a time to book. Once done, you’ll be able to see your reservations on your Trips page and we’ll send you an email confirmation with a link to join the tour.
