Curating Your Family Story is a program created by the Breman Museum in Atlanta in partnership with Beit Hatfutsot Museum of the Jewish People in Israel. This 2018 program engaged 5th and 6th-grade students from Congregation Shearith Israel and led them on a search into their own pasts. Curating Your Family Story stems from My Family Story, a worldwide Jewish heritage program, and competition, now celebrating its 23rd year. The search, interpreted artistically, connected students to their family stories and to the greater narrative of Jewish heritage. The exploration of each student’s personal histories, genealogies, and traditions culminated in this exhibition.

    The Righteous: A Play Reading & Discussion

    What would you do if you learned that your country was enacting a plan to annihilate an entire people? That is the gut-wrenching question faced by Eduard Schulte, a captain of German industry who was familiar with the Nazi High Command. Schulte’s identity was a closely guarded secret and his heroic act to attempt to stop the Holocaust was kept hidden for over forty years. The Righteous brings to light the remarkable and inspiring true story of Eduard Schulte.

    THE JAZZ SINGER | Blacks, Jews, and Jazz | Film and Discussion

    The Jazz Singer starring Al Jolson was the first hit Hollywood film musical with synchronized sound. Telling a story about Jewish assimilation via jazz music, the film notoriously featured Al Jolson in blackface for its climatic numbers. Watch the film and then join Dr. Dwight Andrews and Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein for discussion of its use of jazz, its racial dynamics, and its place in the long and unfortunate history of the representation of Blackface, which persists to this day.
