WINTER
SUN SALE

Besides the six display
cases, the exhibit includes
over 160 objects in 15 display
cases. The objects include a
special yarmulke made of
camouflage material which a
Jewish Vietnam soldier
created for himelf, and an old-
fashioned steamer trunk
which a Jewish chaplain
lugged from place to place as
he ministered to Jewish
soldiers. The contents include
Shabbat candlesticks, a kid-
dush cup, a white silk flag
with the Star of David, even
a miniature Torah.
Not far from the Jewish
War Veterans Museum is the
B'nai B'rith Klutznick
Museum at 1640 Rhode
Island Avenue. On display in
its permanent collection of
Jewish ceremonial and folk
art are more than 500 objects.
There are silver coins from
Israel, Babylonian bowls from
the third century BCE, a
silver amulet from 16th cen-
tury Italy, a copper charity
box from 18th century
Holland, a ketubah from Per-
sia dated 1859, a bronze clock
with Hebrew letters from
Vienna.
Besides its permanent ex-
hibit, the Klutznick Museum
mounts special exhibits. The
current one, "Becoming
Americans," portrays the
story of immigration to the
U.S. in the peak years 1890 to
1924, when over two million
Jewish immigrants left their
homelands for new lives in
America.
The exhibit traces the
journeys and experiences of
these new Americans. The
processing at Ellis Island, the
tenements, the sweatshops,
the new lives in the nation's
crowded cities — all this is
conveyed with photographs,
artifacts and art.
The art includes the bronze
statues of prominent sculptor
Philip Ratner, which will
eventually be on permanent
display in a sculpture garden
on Ellis Island.
A third museum, located
almost in the shadow of the
capital, acquaints the visitor
with Washington's Jewish
history and at the same time
offers the chance to visit a
former synagogue that is now
listed on the U.S. Register of
Historic Places.
Adas Israel at Third and G
Streets is a simple brick
building in late colonial style.
Around it is a delicate
wrought-iron fence with an
intricate Star of David
design.
Though its exterior is
modest, its history is im-
pressive. This was the first
synagogue built in the
capital. President Ulysses S.
Grant and Vice President
