finding south bend's jewish history an interactive scavenger hunt Sunday, August 22 _10AM

You're invited to our "Finding South Bend's Jewish History" scavenger hunt!


In the latter half of the 20th Century, Jewish-owned shops, car dealerships, synagogues, furniture stores, and institutions that benefited the Jewish community flourished in downtown South Bend. We don’t want them to be forgotten and we hope that you'll join us for a fun, interactive scavenger hunt learning how vital the Jewish community was in the growth of South Bend


Join us on August 22 for a FREE team-based scavenger hunt around downtown South Bend, from Howard Park to Four Winds Field and back! You and your team will be guided by a special app for your phone called GooseChase. Each stop along your path will include special missions you must complete before moving on to the next stop.
