Ever wanted to discover more about the roots of Hasidic Judaism in eastern Europe? Well, starting with Poland and eventually moving into other countries, The Institute for the Preservation of Jewish Culture and the Carpathia Institute are developing Hasidic tours to appeal to both religious and well as non-religious Jews.

According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the tours will cover such regions as Lublin and Subcarpathia and visit cities including Lesko, Lezajsk and Zamosc.

While the town of Lezajsk is not well known to most Jews, it is home to the grave of Elimelech Weissblum (1717-1787), one of the founders of the Hasidic movement and where every year on the anniversary of his death, the 21st day of Adar, orthodox Jews pay their respect to him.

"We believe the trail will encourage development of the region's tourist infrastructure," said Malgorzata Bakalarz, the project's coordinator.
