What is a Jewish Museum?

Aaron Berger to Speak at Temple Emanu-El of Atlanta

Executive Director Aaron Berger will share his insights into creating and sustaining a first-rate Jewish museum in the Deep South. He will reveal:

    What makes a museum unique and how it’s done.
    How he created the largest exhibit in the Breman’s history— a look back at Atlanta’s iconic Rich’s Department Store that drew a record 21,000+ visitors.
    Why he launched a high-tech, interactive “Historic Jewish Atlanta” app, the first of its kind in the U.S.
    How he created a program that brought Holocaust survivors together with students from some of Atlanta’s poorest schools.

Located at Temple Emanu-El of Atlanta, this event is FREE and Open to the community but please RSVP to malberhasky@templeemanuelatlanta.com by September 9.
