Buenas dias, estimados amigos,
We know that not every congregant will be able to join us on this amazing trip but we wanted everyone to at least have the opportunity to see some of the things that those of us who do go will experience. Here is a link to a video about Spain and the trip that I'm sure you will find illuminating and quite enjoyable.
If you are interested, please call Alison (718) 263-7000 ext. 200 for more information/to pick one up!
