Shalom Chicago

Shalom Chicago

April 11, 2013 to September 2, 2013

Presented in collaboration with Spertus Institute, Shalom Chicago is an exhibit at the Chicago History Museum about the city’s Jewish community. It illustrates the community’s rich history and contributions to Chicago’s growth and development through personal stories, more than 300 artifacts (many on loan from Spertus), and engaging multimedia presentations.

Discover a rich array of personal stories that represent and illuminate the larger community’s experience. Each story illustrates how Jewish immigrants and their descendants adapted to modern American society while retaining an age-old religious and cultural identity.

Presented at the:
Chicago History Museum
1601 N. Clark Street, Chicago
