Curating Your Family Story: Exhibition Opening and Community Event

Grand Opening and Community Event

FREE and open to the community

Celebrate the opening of the new exhibition and participate in a special family-fun community art project

Curating Your Family Story is a program co-created by the Breman Museum and Beit Hatfutsot, The Museum of the Jewish People in Israel, that connects personal family stories to the Jewish experience and unifies it into a work of art.

Bring your family on September 18th, from 2:00-4:00, to see the art works of the 2016 participants from Machanei Shai at Congregation Shearith Israel, and join in the collaborative art project under the leadership of artist Karin Mervis.

Curating Your Family Story is a new program created by the Breman Museum in partnership with Beit Hatfutsot based on the enduring My Family Story initiative. Now in its 21st year, My Family Story is a fun-filled, meaningful, personal, global and multi-generational Jewish heritage journey, where the exploration of one’s Jewish family roots, genealogy and traditions culminates in an artistic installation.

Free admission is made possible through a generous donation by Beit Hatfutsot and the Covenant Foundation.
