Jewish History Lives

n the lobby of the Nation-
al Museum of Jewish
History in Philadelphia,
visitors admire the display of
Chanukah menorot, Shabbat
candlesticks and framed
ketubot done in elaborate
calligraphy.
The guest book indicates
that many come to the
museum from all over. The
addresses of recent visitors in-
clude Palo Alto, Calif.;
Chanbery, France; Brussels,
Belgium; Johannesburg,
South Africa; and Haifa,
Israel.
It's not surprising that so
many tourists — over 70,000
every year — find their way to
the brick building on north
Fifth Street, just one block
from Independence Hall, in
the heart of Philadelphia's
historic district.
The nation's only museum
devoted entirely to American
Jewish life offers a variety of
attractions to Jewish
travelers (and to many non-
Jews, too, who comprise about
40 percent of its visitors).
First, the museum's perma-
nent exhibit, "The American
Jewish Experience," provides
a journey through three cen-
turies of Jewish life in
America.
It begins with a time line of
world Jewish history that
starts in 1492 when Jews
were expelled from Catholic
Spain and extends into the
1980s, with such dates noted
as 1987 when Austrian presi-
dent Kurt Waldheim, former
officer of the Third Reich, was
barred from the U.S.
The exhibit itself focuses on
the American Jewish ex-
perience in all its variety,

with over 350 objects and im-
ages, it tells the story of how
Jews have participated in
American life from colonial
times to the present. Jewish
artists, Jewish cowboys,
Jewish entrepreneurs, Jewish
family life, the immigrant ex-
perience — all is portrayed
with photographs, art, ar-
tifacts, and explanation.
The display includes
ceremonial silver pieces from
colonial times, marriage cer-
tificates, Yiddish theater
posters, diaries, and newspa-
pers. Among its documents is
a book with the minutes of
meetings of Congregation Sur
Israel in Recife, Brazil; the
last date recorded in 1643,
just before 23 refugees sailed
into New Amsterdam to start
the first Jewish settlement in
North America.
Other objects from every
period of American history in-
clude the epaulets worn by
Commodore Uria Phillips
Levy, who helped to abolish
flogging in the U.S. Navy; the
badge worn by Adolphus
Gluck, the Jewish mayor of
Dodge City, Kan., in 1895;
and the mezzuzah carried by
astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman on
a space mission in 1985.

The exhibit documents
Jewish participation in all
the aspects of the nation's life,
from Jews who served in
America's wars to Jews in
business, who ranged from
butchers and peddlers-to the
founders of such giant com-
panies as Levi Strauss,
Macy's and Sears Roebuck.
With all its diversity and
breadth, this exhibit isn't all
there is to see in Philadel-
phia's Jewish museum. The
sanctuary of historic Mikveh
Israel congregation is also
open to visitors, and it direct-
