This exhibition highlights the oldest Georgia-based Jewish non-profit from inception to present through photography and stories. The story of the Jewish Education Loan Fund (JELF) spans three centuries starting as an orphanage in the late nineteenth century, it grew to become an important social service agency in the twentieth century, then a financial aid fund that continues to thrive today. This exhibition tells a powerful story of how philanthropy and a deep commitment to education can transform the community and leave a profound legacy.

The Official Opening Event will be Thursday, August 24, 2017 at 6PM. Held at The Breman Museum.

Current Exhibitions

  • Absence of Humanity : The Holocaust Years, 1933-1945

    This permanent exhibition presents the history of the Holocaust through artifacts and stories of Atlanta area Holocaust Survivors.

  • Seeking Justice : The Leo Frank Case Revisited

    Even after 100 years the events surrounding the murder of Mary Phagan and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank remain both disturbing and morbidly fascinating. Seeking Justice allows visitors to look at the momentous and tragic events of the years 1913-1915 through the lens of the societal and political tensions that existed in Atlanta at that time. The full exhibition provides an immersive experience for visitors, while an artifact only display for smaller spaces conveys this story's significance in a more condensed manner.
