Journey of Justice: A Civil Rights Exploration

April 4-7, 2024

Join Rabbi Goldstein and Debbie Bram this spring for a 4-day Civil Rights tour of Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Birmingham. The trip will include visits to the Rosa Parks Museum, Equal Justice Legacy Museum, Lynching Memorial, Edmund Pettus Bridge, King Center, and more. We will also meet with Civil Rights activists, celebrate Shabbat, worship at the Ebenezer Baptist Church, and connect with our Jewish values of tzedek (justice) and shalom (peace).

We are holding an informational meeting on Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Library Conference Room. Here we will share a detailed itinerary and the final cost of the trip. RSVP for this meeting to Stacy Jespersen.
