The Neuberger's signature Vienna Trip for Young Professionals has run successful tours in 2014 & 2015. Participants have returned with fresh perspectives on Jewish life and modern Europe. It has sparked interest in furthering their knowledge on the Holocaust and increased their desire to participate in Jewish programming in their communities. Program alumna Abigail Bimman, a journalist based in Kitchener, ON, wrote about the trip for the Canadian Jewish News.
Participants are responsible for their own airfare to and from Vienna and a non-refundable program fee of $650.
