Request Press Images

Friday, January 8, 2021--The Jewish Museum condemns the acts of hate and violence committed when a mob stormed and desecrated the U.S. Capitol; this intolerable event continues to reverberate. We are horrified by the anti-Semitic attack on the Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust and stand in solidarity with our peers.  

As an art museum rooted in Jewish culture and identity, the Jewish Museum strives to unify people of all faiths and backgrounds. We continue to fight bigotry and anti-Semitism.
