Passover programs in Europe have become increasingly popular over the past fifteen years. There was great demand for the limited, post-COVID Passover programs in Europe and we expect that to continue this year. Pesach 2023 begins on Wednesday, April 5th and ends on Thursday, April 13th in Europe and Wednesday, April 12th in Israel. Passover is an ideal time to vacation in Europe without having to worry about where to eat or daven. The Pesach hotels in Europe provide Kosher for Passover food as well as daily minyanim. There are Pesach hotels that offer golfing, skiing,pools and spas. Chol Hamoed is a great time to explore the local cultural and heritage sights or lounge on the beach.

There were many successful Pesach programs in Europe for Passover 2022, including those in Croatia, Greece, Italy, France, Spain and Prague. Most Passover programs in Europe sold out early and had long waiting lists. Those who booked their Pesach vacation early enjoyed lower rates for both programs and flights. This year, airlines should be better prepared for the increase in international travel so there will be fewer cancellations and the low dollar/euro exchange rate helps to compensate for the effects of inflation. There are Pesach programs in Europe to accommodate a range of budgets. Passover program prices vary based on the location, amenities and programming. Many programs have early bird deals so the earlier you book the better, lock in the price and reserve a spot before the program sells out.
