World Refugee day is an opportunity to build empathy for and honor refugees around the globe. Join the Capital Jewish Museum, the Jewish Museum of Maryland, and CASA of Maryland for a virtual program to explore the stories and objects immigrants and refugees have brought with them to their new homes and discover ways we can show kindness and acceptance towards newcomers in our communities today.

This family program is open to all with the activities designed for children ages 6-12.

You can access the additional activities and resources page for the program here.

Hello my name is leah I bought tickets off of Groupon I’m not understanding if your closed to the public?!

Hi Leah, thank you for your question. The museum’s re-entry task force is being reconstituted and will be coordinating the full range of re-entry efforts beginning with bringing our staff back into the building. We will announce the schedule for a resumption of public hours as soon as we are confident that we have done our due diligence in preparing to welcome the public. The JMM is eager to open its doors to the public soon. Updates to our status can be found on our website here: https://jewishmuseummd.org/plan-your-visit/.
