Museum Matters: June 2019

Posted on June 7, 2019 by

We Get the Job Done!

This month we celebrate the contribution of immigrants from around the globe to the American story. We kick things off on June 20, by welcoming the latest group of Americans as they take their oaths of citizenship at the JMM.

The following Sunday, Hamiltunes will help us sing the praises of Alexander Hamilton, who fans of the Broadway show will know was a Jewish-educated, Caribbean immigrant. Hamiltunes, where we the people have a chance to rap the iconic musical, is the centerpiece of this year’s Jonestown Festival. This year the festival is being held at the Star-Spangled Banner Flag House, just a short walk from JMM. It’s a great way to share your pride in America’s immigrant roots with your whole family.

We finish the month with stories of refugees – both those of the Holocaust period, and those who are coming to America today.

Don’t throw away your shot. Come join us in June.
