Southeast Civil Rights Journey with Rabbi Weiss

May 13-15, 2024

~$1000/person plus airfare

Participants will learn about the struggles of African Americans to gain equality in the 1950s & 60s as well as discover how Jews were involved in the Civil Rights struggle. You will walk away understanding why Jews, as people who have known oppression, must care and act when others are oppressed. Our journey will include Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham. We’ll see the Equal Justice Initiative Legacy Museum and Memorial to the victims of lynching, Freedom Park, the site where Leo Frank was lynched, the Rosa Parks Museum, the Martin Luther King Center/Auburn Ave. district, Ebenezer Baptist Church,  the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and the 16th Street Baptist Church.

Come and join your Oak Park Temple family on a journey as we explore civil rights sites in Georgia and Alabama May 13-15. We will visit the Ebenezer Baptist Church, The King Center, the Equal Justice Initiative's Legacy Museum, The Southern Poverty Law Center Memorial, The Rosa Parks Museum, The Edmund Pettus Bridge, and sites in Birmingham. You can see the itinerary here. We will be traveling with Etgar 36 and they will provide a guide for us as well as make the arrangements.
