A Call for Stories & Photos of Multiracial Jews & Jews of Color
The National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia

The National Museum of American Jewish History is currently seeking stories and photos which would illustrate and underscore Judaism’s growing heterogeneity and diversity. If you would like to share something with the Museum or know someone who might be interested, please take a look at the information below. Feel free to forward this as well.

CAN YOU HELP??

In the fall of 2010, the National Museum of American Jewish History will open the doors to a new state-of-the-art building in Philadelphia. This will be the largest institution of its kind devoted specifically to exhibiting and educating about the American Jewish experience. Using historical objects, cutting-edge technology, hands-on interactives, and narrative storytelling, the Museum’s core exhibition will highlight how and when Jews immigrated to America, the choices they faced, the challenges they confronted, and the ways in which they shaped, and were shaped by, their American home.

The Museum is currently seeking stories and photographs of multiracial Jews and Jews of color, which would illustrate and underscore Judaism’s growing heterogeneity and diversity. These might include family portraits and photographs from Jewish holidays or lifecycle events, such as Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and Jewish weddings. Any photographs submitted would be scanned and reproduced as graphic images in the exhibition (we do not need original prints, only reproductions) with identification. These images would provide a personal reference for the Museum to interpret the changing face of American Jewry.

If you would like to share your stories and photographs with the Museum, please contact Ivy Weingram, Assistant Curator, at 215.923.3811 x 137 or via email at iweingram@nmajh.org. For more information about the National Museum of American Jewish History, please visit www.nmajh.org.
