Memphis is known for its legendary music and historic, but there are tons of new spots to explore and experiences to be had. So even if you’ve been to Memphis before, you’ve never experienced it as part of the JCC Movement!
Free walking tour, Monday, May 7th:
Join local historian Jimmy Ogle as he takes you on a walking tour of Memphis’s Pinch District, the oldest part of the city and the center of Memphis’ Jewish community from the 1890s to the 1930’s. Tour starts at 5:15 pm and will last about 45 minutes.
Blues Hall of Fame Museum:
Visit the Blues Hall of Fame Museum between 5 and 7 pm. Opened in May of 2015, the Blues Hall of Fame Museum is a Memphis gem for both serious blues fans and casual visitors. With robust exhibits and in-depth history, the museum exposes, educates, and entertains visitors with all that is blues culture while highlighting over 400 inductees in five key categories: Performer, Individual, Album, Single, and Literature.
Both events are hosted by Memphis JCC and are free to biennial attendees and their significant others.
Biennial Closing Program, Tuesday, May 8th:
As part of the 2018 JCCs of North America Biennial, we will visit the historic National Civil Rights Museum at The Lorraine Hotel.
Learn about all that there is through the Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau.
