2024 Adults Civil Rights Journey

Adult Civil Rights Journey March 28-31, 2024
 
Join Rabbi Kramer on a once-in-a-lifetime Civil Rights Journey to Atlanta, Montgomery,
and Birmingham. During these three days, we will meet with Reverends who worked
with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and experience church services in the famed Ebenezer
Baptist Church. Among the many sites we will visit are the Rosa Parks Museum and the
new Equal Justice Initiative’s new Legacy Museum & Lynching Memorial. We will speak
with activists who marched from Selma to Montgomery and walked across the Edmund
Pettus Bridge*.

 
Alongside these and other incredible first-hand experiences, we will engage with the
contemporary realities of race and racism, the legacy of civil rights, and consider how
each of us can make an impact. We will also enjoy building our own community as we
travel, eat, and reflect together.

This program is run through Etgar 36, a pluralistic, nonpartisan, and nonprofit Jewish
educational venture that leads (primarily) Jewish groups to the South. These groups
seek to better understand the history of the civil rights movement and, the connection
between Jews and Blacks African Americans during that time, and to consider issues in
the present moment connected with civil rights. During the trip, we will also reflect on
Jewish-Black relations then and now.

PICK UP THURSDAY NIGHT:
On Thursday night, we will be able to meet your group at the Atlanta airport with the bus to
take people to the hotel until 9:30 PM. You can let me know what that time will be based on
your group needs.
If people arrive in Atlanta early, they will be able to check in under their own name AFTER
4 PM.
If you arrive later than that you will need to find a way to get the group to the hotel as our
bus must be “off the clock” by then in order to start up on time the next morning.
If you need to feed your group dinner after the flight, there are plenty of options at the
airport. Near our hotel there is every kind of fast food restaurant you could want.

DROP OFF ON SUNDAY MORNING:
On Sunday, please make your flight departs from Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson Airport for
3:30 PM at the earliest. We will be done by 12:30 PM and we can drop you off at the airport
by 1 PM. A 3:30 PM flight at the earliest should give you time to get through security.
