Etgar Southeast Civil Rights Journey

We’ll be going on an Etgar Southeast Civil Rights Journey with high school students from Temple Beth Or and Congregation Hakafa in Glencoe, IL.  The date reserved for us is February 28 -March 3, 2019.  We want YOU to come with us!  Even if you are no longer involved in religious school, we would love for you to attend this trip.  We took several students on this trip in 2016 and they all felt it was a powerful experience. 

During this trip you will learn about the struggles of African Americans to gain equality in the 50’s and 60’s, how Jews were involved in the Civil Rights movement and why Jews, must care and act when others are oppressed.  The journey will include visits to the following cities: Atlanta, Georgia; Montgomery, Selma, & Birmingham, Alabama.  We will also visit the following sites: where Leo Frank was lynched, the Lynching Museum, the Rosa Parks Museum, the Martin Luther King Center/Auburn Ave. district, Ebenezer Church, the Edmund Pettus Bridge, the Equal Justice Initiative, Freedom Park and Birmingham Civil Rights Institute and the Names Project –AIDS Quilt.
