“Wherever you go, there’s always someone Jewish!” These words are very true and HaNefesh is excited to explore countries around the world where Jews have lived and contributed to many communities.

Throughout the year we will “travel” to various communities learning from highly qualified tour guides and educators. Then, we will pair our “trips” with a local event, exploring foods and culture of our destinations.

About Louise

Louise Arwas is originally from grey and rainy London. Her father, grandparents and great-grandparents were all born in Egypt, and despite their traumatic expulsion and exile in 1956, she grew up on stories of the glorious days of Egyptian Jewry. In 2018 she returned to Egypt with her father, and ever since, has immersed herself in learning more about this somewhat forgotten period of Jewish history.

She is involved in several related education projects, including organizing an upcoming heritage tour to Cairo and Alexandria with former community members who will share their personal stories. Louise works in marketing and now lives with her family in sunny Israel.

“This program is partially funded by a grant from the Jewish Community Foundation Orange County.”
