Keshet Virtual Tour of Cordoba, Spain

April 4 at 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

The 1000 year Jewish story of Sepharad is one of triumph and despair.  Join Keshet Israel Educator, Kayla Ship, for a virtual tour of Cordoba, home of Hasdai ibn Shaprut, Yehuda Halevi, and Maimonides and impressive landmarks such as La Mezquita.  We will highlight the “Golden Age” of Spain and its contribution to Hebrew poetry, science, medicine, and Jewish philosophy.

Kayla Ship, Vice President of Keshet, has been part of the Keshet team since 2000. Kayla was born and raised in Boston. She received a BA in Anthropology and Religion from Dartmouth College and holds a Masters in Theological Studies from Harvard Divinity School. In addition, she participated in the Visiting Graduate Student Program at Hebrew University, where she concentrated on Second Temple Period History and the “Golden Age of Spain”.

Kayla made aliyah in 1997. She is a licensed tour guide and is the Director of Keshet’s Jewish Roots Journeys to Sepharad. Kayla is active in Conservative synagogues and the Masorti movement in Israel.
