Montgomery, Selma, Atlanta, DC: Reflections on Our Civil Rights Journeys

This fall four TBE members devoted their travels to learning more about the history of American race relations.

Rabbis Bonnie Margulis and Jonathan Biatch joined 50 rabbis organized by the Central Conference of American Rabbis and spent 48 intense hours in Montgomery and Selma, Alabama, discovering 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 their 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 TBE's Racial Justice Action Team.

This promises to be an interesting discussion. Please join us on Wednesday, January 29, from 7:00 to 9:00 pm at Temple Beth El. You can sign up here: https://www.tbemadison.org/event/reflectionsoncivilrights
