Day in Philadelphia

Come join us for a special day trip to the National Museum of Jewish American History in Philadelphia on Tuesday, December 3, 2019. 

Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, is the first retrospective of her extraordinary life and career.  The exhibit marries immersive 3-dimensional environments with historic artifacts to bring key moments in RBG’s personal and professional story to life.  Justice Ginsburg acquired the nickname Notorious RBG after a series of fiery, record-breaking dissents she gave from the Supreme Court bench in 2013.  Most vividly, she protested the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, comparing the decision to “throwing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet.”
