TravelStorys Launch Event: Jewish Birmingham and Civil Rights with TBE and TEE
Sunday, October 17 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 PM
Temple Beth-El and Temple Emanu-El
Join us for a “soft launch” of the Beth El Civil Rights Experiences’ Jewish Birmingham + Civil Rights audio tour! For our “soft launch” event we’ll be previewing the first five stops of the tour, which will be complete Fall 2022. And we’ll be partnering with Temple Emanu-El, so that we can enjoy engaging with our history as a whole Birmingham Jewish community.
You must register for a timed slot to attend and plan to arrive at that time. We will be putting participants in groups to embark on this self-guided audio tour together. This tour will take place in downtown Birmingham and the walking route is approximately 1.5 miles round trip. Participants who register will receive a map, arrival information and detailed instructions about accessing the audio tour before the event.
Please consider making a donation to the Beth El Civil Rights Experience to support the development of this project! You will be prompted to do so through the registration page.

Beit Midrash with Rabbi Norry: Five Remarkable Objects in the Bible
Thursday, October 21 @ 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
This Fall, Rabbi Norry will lead the Beit Midrash through a class on “Five Remarkable Objects in the Bible.” Discover a new way to read Torah by looking at remarkable objects that appear in the story line. While most people focus on the characters in the stories, we often overlook an object – a thing – that plays an important role and drives the story forward. We will adopt an artistic, or curatorial approach, and ask “what is it,” “what is it made of,” “where is it,” and “when does it appear in the story?” “Is it a singular object or are there a lot of them?” “What became of it?” “Where is it now?”
The Beit Midrash meets every week from 12-1PM via Zoom.
