The Shalom Chicago exhibit explores Chicago’s diverse Jewish community from the 1840s to today. Using personal stories, over 300 artifacts, and engaging multimedia programs, the exhibition explores how a small but dynamic community helped shape modern Chicago.
The exhibition will explore the history of Jewish Chicago, focusing on themes of immigration, community, identity, work, religion, arts and culture, and the impact of World War II. Personal stories, rare artifacts, audiovisual programs and engaging interactive installations will convey the community’s rich history.
