Israel and Travel

TBA 2016 Trip to IsraelTBA 2016 Trip to Israel We encourage our community to explore the ancient sites described in the Torah, to engage with people who represent the diversity and dynamism of the modern-day country, and to share their experiences. Every few years, Temple Beth Am organizes a trip to Israel for members with one of our rabbis. We also offer year-round opportunities to connect with other members and special guests on the topic of Israel.

Temple Beth Am Civil Rights Journey

June 21 – 28, 2018
Atlanta, Montgomery, Selma, Birmingham, Memphis, Graceland
Congregants will learn about the struggles of African Americans to gain equality in the 1950s and '60s as well as discover how Jews were involved in Civil Rights struggle. We will delve into the creation of rock and roll and how this helped break down the walls of segregation. We will gain a deeper understanding of why Jews, as a people who have known oppression, must care and act when others are oppressed. Our itinerary will include visits to the Rosa Parks Museum, Edmund Pettus Bridge, Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Stax and Sun Studios, and the Underground Railroad Museum and National Civil Rights Museum.

Price per person will be $950-$1,500 depending on number of people per room and includes all meals, ground transportation, hotels, admission, and programming costs. Flight costs are separate (Seattle -> Atlanta, Memphis -> Seattle).

Registration details coming soon. Come find out more at our Information Session on Wednesday, November 8 from 5:30 – 6:30 PM.
