Exhibition Expeditions

Tenement MuseumTuesdays, Oct 20 & 27, Nov 10, 17, & 24 I 4:00 PM

Just because we're stuck at home doesn't mean we can't wander through exhibit halls around the country! Join us for live, virtual guided tours of some of the most celebrated Jewish museums in the United States.

Schedule (Subject to Change)

  • Oct 20: The Jewish Museum, New York
    • Scenes from the Collection: Explore the Jewish Museum’s rotating collection exhibition which features nearly 600 works from antiquities to contemporary art and addresses themes such as cultural identity, memory, immigration, and language. The virtual tour will be led by a member of the Jewish Museum Education Department.
  • Oct 27: Holocaust Museum Houston
  • Nov 10: Jewish Museum of the American West, California
  • Nov 17: Lower East Side Tenement Museum, New York
    • Meet the Rogarshevsky family, a Jewish American family from Lithuania who lived in 97 Orchard Street in the 1910s. Tenement Museum Educators will virtually guide you through their home, and discuss how the family balanced their traditions with working outside the home at garment factories across the city. You will consider the difficulties of factory work for teenage Bessie Rogarshevsky, and learn about labor unions, working conditions, the 1918 flu pandemic, and the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory through Bessie’s perspective. 
  • Nov 24: Museum of Tolerance, California
    • Tolerancenter: Contemporary Lessons. Explore some of the MOT's most moving interactive exhibits examining themes such as dynamics of discrimination, personal responsibility and democracy and diversity. The session is designed to draw connections from history to current events and to spark personal reflection on how to create the changes we seek. Conversation will focus on the impact of hate and hate crimes, media literacy and personal responsibility.
