EVENT: Stories From the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience

Jacqueline Schmidt Discussion

The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies is inviting you to attend this amazing online experience brought to you by The Sally & Ralph Duchin Memorial Lecture Series!


Explore the stories held in the galleries of the newly opened Museum  of  the  Southern  Jewish Experience  (MSJE).  Spanning thirteen  states  and  three  hundred  years,  the  MSJE's  core exhibition  explores  the  diverse  relationships,  experiences, and environments  encountered  by  Jewish  communities  in  the American  South. We’ll  discuss  artifacts  and  stories  from  early Jewish immigrants as they navigated southern spaces to find and build  communities.  Learn  how  southern  Jews  maintained  their identity and became part of the fabric of southern society. In this live tour, the MSJE team will virtually walk us through the galleries and talk with us about this unique yet universal story. At the end of the tour, Duchin Lecture attendees will have the opportunity to share thoughts and ask questions.

The Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience explores the many ways that Jews in the American South influenced and were influenced by the distinct cultural heritage of their new homes. Through exhibits, collections and programs focused on the unique and remarkable history of Southern Jews, the Museum encourages new understanding and appreciation for identity, diversity, and acceptance.
