Na­tional Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Jewish His­tory

Where Philadelphia - - Editor's Itinerary -

This mu­seum starts at the top and at the be­gin­ning. Fo­cus­ing on Jewish im­mi­gra­tion sto­ries as early as the sev­en­teenth cen­tury, a trip to this mu­seum gives vis­i­tors a com­pre­hen­sive look at Jewish life in Amer­ica. As you ven­ture down the stairs (or el­e­va­tor), you get closer and closer to present day life, fol­low­ing their jour­ney through faith, leg­is­la­tion, re­li­gious ex­pres­sion and more, end­ing with a Hall of Fame gallery on the first floor fea­tur­ing ar­ti­facts from well-known Jewish Amer­i­cans. This month, look out for “1917: How One Year Changed the World,” which looks back on a sin­gle year and the great im­pact it still has, on view through July 16. 101 S. In­de­pen­dence Mall East. 215. 923. 3811, nmajh.org
