Southern Jewish Roots: Charlotte Heritage Tour
Understanding our past. Celebrating our present. Visioning our future.
About the Tour...
It is COVID-safe... we travel in our own cars and have an amplification system that we carry with us so you can maintain a safe social distance.
It is educational... Rabbi Judy Schindler, Roz Cooper and Susan Jacobs, are three veteran Charlotte educators who love Charlotte's history and will guide you through two centuries of Jewish life celebrating our rich past and our boundless potential for a shining future.
It broadens your appreciation for Charlotte's leaders... Hear stories that can't be found in history books, and personal gems of wisdom in the voices of our community's founders, builders, and philanthropists.
It is delicious... Jewish nosh included, complete with knish, kugel, Israeli salad, and rugelach.
