Hebro Travel was founded by Littman in 2014 following many years of running Hebro Nightlife, a successful gay Jewish event company in New York City. The new travel company is a way to reach out to a different demographic within the gay Jewish community— one that is looking to share fun and adventurous experiences with other gay Jews outside of a more traditional setting.
