The advantages of a private Orayta trip are:
1. Timing - We feel that a trip in February/March will be educationally advantageous as the students will return for Purim and several weeks of learning, as opposed to immediately leaving for Pesach vacation.
2. Pricing - Due to February/March being off-peak season for Poland travel, the cost of the trip will be $2,100 which is approximately $250 cheaper than the group trip (with a comparable schedule).
3. Orayta Staff - By creating our own, private Heritage trip, Orayta will be able to send more staff members on the trip, which means a greater ability to process the educational experience with the students before, during and after the trip.
4. Parent Participation - Parents and Grandparents are welcome to join the trip and share this special experience with their son/grandson.
