Event Details

​​How did Jewish settlers come to inhabit—and change—the New World? Dive deep into the story of the first Jewish Americans on a special docent-led tour of our exhibition, The First Jewish Americans: Freedom and Culture in the New World. Exploring the exhibition's portraits, documents, manuscripts, ritual objects, and much more, this tour illuminates the stories behind centuries-old objects, some exceptionally rare and on display to the public for the first time. ​
