I am an active member of the Jewish Community in Lima. I attended the Jewish Day School in Lima, and was a teacher for over 10 years. I am fluent in English and speak basic Hebrew. By guiding groups of tourists thru the Jewish highlights in Lima, I have the opportunity to show them the different aspects of the past and the present related to the community. I have a B.A. in Biology and a M.A. in Jewish History. I have also attended multiple seminars and classes in Marketing and Advertising. For 20 years I was the Commercial Manager for one of the largest importers of confectionery in Peru.
Our tour will be in San Isidro and Miraflores. We will visit the three main synagogues as well as the Leon Pinelo School. Our last stop will be at a beautiful park that honors Prime Minister Rabin of Israel. Through our visit to different locations, the guest will learn about the history of the Jews in Peru, the waves of immigration and the challenges that Jews had to face in the new world.
We need to do a security clearance for each guest. Will need a coy of the passport provided to me at least 10 days before the tour to get the permits.
