Sounding the Shofar in Hinds County, Mississippi

One of the greatest things about the “Southern Jewish Experience” is getting not only to have Southern Jewish experiences, but also getting to be a Southern Jewish experience. This week, Rachel Jarman Myers took the Traveling Trunk to share with students in a summer program at the Tisdale branch of the Jackson/Hinds County Library. For the first time, these students learned hands-on about immigration in America, Jewish culture, and even heard the sound of the shofar.

As you can see, it really was a pretty incredible experience – for the students, and for Rachel!
