Ron Glait, is the Adult Learning Program Manager and the Museum Technology Manager, at The Contemporary Jewish Museum, where he shares his love of art and deep knowledge of Jewish culture and history with visitors of all ages and walks of life, through developing and leading education programs, tours and presentations of the Museum’s exhibitions.
Born and raised in Israel, Ron moved to the US in the summer of 2017, after completing his Master of Education at The Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel-Aviv, where he specialized in Visual Literacy and Museum Studies. His academic research around the Holocaust and Collective Memory was inspired by his familial story. As a third generation of Holocaust Survivors, Ron examined the connections between the visual representation of the Holocaust in Israel, and the development of a personal memory of the Holocaust in relation to the collective memory.
