Tour the galleries of the newly opened Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience (MSJE). Spanning thirteen states and three hundred years, the MSJE’s core exhibition explores the diverse relationships, experiences, and environments encountered by Jewish communities in the American South.
Explore artifacts and stories from early Jewish immigrants as they navigated southern spaces to find and build communities. Learn how southern Jews maintained their identity and became part of the fabric of southern society. The MSJE team, including Milwaukeean Lizzi Meister, will walk us through the galleries and have a conversation about this unique yet universal story.
