The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington (JHSGW) needs input from as many people as possible on our new regional Jewish museum (projected opening 2020). As part of that process, we are turning to the community for thoughts on stories for the new museum’s core exhibition.¬† This workshop will include a series of activities designed to get participants thinking, talking, and sharing their counsel for this new project.¬† We’ll look at a handful of objects and stories, and discuss how, together, they tell the unique story of Washington’s Jewish community.
