Yom HaShoah in Whitwell
Members of the Beth Joshua and Tikvat Israel communities will be travelling together to Whitwell, TN, on April 23-24, 2017, which is Yom HaShoah.

The goal of the trip is to bear witness to an incredible Holocaust memorial created in this small town (known from the documentary "Paperclips"), and to meet the individuals behind its creation and implementation. The trip will offer a window into a part of our country very different than our own, affording us the opportunity for meaningful dialogue on some of the pressing issues of today.

A rough itinerary of the trip is outlined below, but is still in formation. Participants will be expected to arrange their own round trip travel down to Atlanta, and overnight stay in Atlanta, although we will provide suggestions and may get a group rate at a hotel. A participation fee will be announced to cover shared costs of food and bus transportation.

Those that have already purchased tickets, are flying on Southwest out of BWI at 6:40AM to Atlanta on April 23. Participants have expressed a desire to return at various times on Monday, including first thing in the morning, and late in the evening. There are also similar timed flights out of DCA.
