Chicago Bus Trip: Jewish Festival and Holocaust Museum

Sunday, June 10, 2018 27 Sivan 5778

8:00 AM - 9:00 PMMeet at TBE for a bus trip to the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival and the Illinois Holocaust Museum in Skokie.

Take a road trip to Chicago with TBE! Board the bus for an exciting day at the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival and the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. Share dinner with friends new and old at a restaurant before returning to Madison in the evening.

The Greater Chicago Jewish Festival is the longest running Jewish Festival in America! The event intertwines sounds, sights and tastes of Jewish culture and celebrates Jewish identity. It features four stages of music and dance (with local and well-known Jewish performers), a juried art fair, kosher food fair, children's activities, and booths for over 100 Jewish organizations. See for news and the line-up of performers. TBE bus trip participants can choose to stay at the Festival from our arrival (~11am) until about 4:45 pm, or leave the park at 1:00 pm to travel to the Illinois Holocaust Museum. There will be a private museum tour at 1:30 pm (including the interactive 3D hologram experience), followed by the opportunity to explore the museum's special exhibits until 5:00 pm. The main special exhibit that day will be "Speak Truth to Power", which highlights the experiences of courageous Upstanders from across the world and urges action against Human Rights violations.
