Thursday March 10 – Sunday March 13, 2022

Travel south with us to learn about the struggles of African Americans in demanding equality in the 1950’s and 1960’s and how Jews were involved in the civil rights struggle. Sites (subject to changes due to COVID) include the Rosa Parks Museum, the Birmingham Civil Rights InstituteThe King Center, Ebenezer Baptist Church (tentative as it is currently not open to the public), the Edmund Pettus Bridge and more. We will join with the teens from Temple Israel of New Rochelle and the program includes 4 – 6 education sessions on Tuesday evenings leading up to the trip.

FAQ'sFrom the Etgar 36 Program Provider

Can my food issues be accommodated?
Most likely, we can accommodate vegetarian, vegan, peanut allergies, and
gluten free diets. Participants do need to realize we are in the deep south
and are taking advantage of local cuisine. People with dietary concerns are
encouraged to bring their snacks and supplemental food that they can keep on the bus.

Do the hotel rooms have refrigerators in them?
Yes. There are mini fridges in the rooms.

How does lunch at Pizitz Food Hall work?
We give each participant money to use for lunch when we get to the food hall.

All attendees must be vaccinated. Our plan is to have everyone receive a Covid-19 PCR Test 72 hours before our plane departure and rapid tests at the airport. If we decide to only house teens with 2 per room, the trip's cost will increase by approximately $200. 

$995. This includes flight, hotel, most food and program costs.
