This traveling panel exhibition from the Leo Baeck Institute at the Center for Jewish History (New York, New York) uses iconic artefacts to explore how interwoven the lives of Jewish people and their non-Jewish neighbors have been in the 17 centuries since the presence of Jews in the Rhineland was first documented in a Roman Edict from the year 321 CE. Viewers are encouraged to consider the objects as they relate to recurring themes of Jewish life including migration, inclusion, and acculturation as well as exile, persecution, and resilience. The exhibition expands the view of German-Jewish history beyond the narrow lens of the Holocaust and connects the unique history of the Jewish people to themes that are relevant to contemporary life in all diverse, pluralist societies.

The exhibition is available in 2022 for display at institutions in North America including, but not limited to, congregations, schools, universities, museums, libraries, and historical societies. More information at the exhibition website.

American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith

With issues of government representation in the news daily, SITES’ American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith is a timely exploration of the continuing evolution of America’s experiment in a government “of, by, and for the people.” American Democracy, based on the exhibition of the same name at the National Museum of American History, explores the origins of our democracy and who has had the right to vote throughout our history, the machinery of democracy, from local elections to Presidential campaigns, and how citizens can influence our government beyond the ballot and citizen’s rights and responsibilities.

Featuring engaging multimedia and interactives, immersive design, and historic objects from the Smithsonian collections and other sources, American Democracy proves that democracy depends on the people.
