“Skull Caps and Shul Hats”

Our “Skull Caps and Shul Hats” exhibit will be on display upstairs at the JCC. People of all religions have made it a custom to cover their heads in deference to G-d. While the kippah remains a popular part of Jewish ceremony, shul hats have fallen out of fashion. This traveling exhibit from the JHM focuses on three local family collections of hats from the 1940s to present.

Annual Jewish History Museum Benefit

Our benefit October 26 was a huge success. Stanley Feldman spoke as our 2014 Jewish Heritage Award recipient. We held the event at the Scottish Rite Cathedral just a few blocks north of the museum downtown. The scenery in the background is from the 1800s and set a gorgeous stage. We had a huge buffet and an ice sculpture in the shape of the museum. Before and after our program Birks Works played jazz and filled the room with revelry.
