Are you interested in our nation’s civil rights history? Have you ever wanted to visit the places where that history was made? If so, you will want to join four members of our congregation as they share what they learned during their recent travels.

Rabbis Bonnie Margulis and Jonathan Biatch joined 50 rabbis, organized by the Central Conference of American Rabbis, for 48 intense hours in Montgomery and Selma, Alabama, discovering the roots of our nation's slave history and hearing from eyewitnesses to racism and bigotry from the 20th to 21st centuries.

Mary Fulton and Steven Koslov joined a friend who has worked as an attorney for Georgia Legal Services for more than 40 years on a trip to visit civil rights memorials and museums in Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, and Washington, DC. The inspiration for the trip came from Mary's family's immersion in civil rights issues, Bryan Stevenson's work, and learnings from their participation in TBE's Racial Justice Action Team.

Please join us for this interesting discussion.
