Europe isn’t the only place where you can enjoy a Jewish heritage tour. Forget the long travel time and extra packing because you can enjoy a kosher cruise in the United States.
Kosher River Cruises in partnership with American Cruise Lines is bringing you an all-inclusive kosher cruise to one of the longest rivers in the world: the Mississippi River.
If you are searching for a trip that lets you stay kosher and explore Jewish culture and history, then you should spend your Jewish vacation with us.
Why the Mississippi?
The Jews have quite the history with the Mississippi.
In the early 18th century, the first Jews from Eastern and Central European merchants arrived in Natchez City, the so-called “Antebellum Capital of the World”. The merchants made their way south to Biloxi by selling dry goods to local farmers. Soon, they were able to establish their first synagogue less than a mile from the Mexico Gulf.
Although a small minority among the Mississippi population, the Jews were able to forge communities and preserve their culture and practices.
For 160 years, the Jews have been generally accepted in the state of Mississippi. In fact, some of them were elected as government officials.
That is why Kosher River Cruise is delighted to take you on a one of a kind cruise and offer a luxury Jewish vacation to everyone. Here’s what you can expect:
