STORIES FROM THE MUSEUM OF THE SOUTHERN JEWISH EXPERIENCE
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. To learn more, please visit msje.org.
