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

  • A Jazz Memoir : Photography by Herb Snitzer

    In support of the Breman Museum’s mission to “Connect people to Jewish history, culture, and arts,” the newest exhibition, A Jazz Memoir: Photography by Herb Snitzer features photography documenting America’s jazz scene, focusing on the 1957–1964, of his over fifty-year career. For most of that time, Herb was the photography editor for Metronome, the primary magazine devoted to jazz. Images of Louis Armstrong, Nina Simone, Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Duke Ellington, John Coltrane, Count Basie and many others are showcased in the exhibit. Additional works reveal his desire to use photography to effect social change and his belief that “Injustice for one is injustice for all.” A Jazz Memoir also speaks to the links that connect Jews, jazz and the African American community.
