Event Details

EVENT CANCELLED Your health and well-being are our first priority, so we know that you won't be surprised that we are canceling our Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours in their current form for the time being.

Delve into historic Jewish Atlanta with exclusive tours of some of the city's most significant sites! Twenty years ago, a Georgia Tech grad student outlined a vision in a master's thesis that has literally transformed the Gate City. Today, nothing reflects the Atlanta's 21st Century urban renewal better than the Beltline, a network of railroad tracks converted into biking and walking trails that will form a contiguous loop of 33 miles once completed. Join us for a tour of Atlanta's past and present as we ponder what, exactly, these trends portend for the future.
