Conference Proceeding: Building a Jewish Museum in the 21st Century

In the 20th century Jewish museums expanded, were built, and grew across the United States. Now a new Jewish museum is on the horizon in Washington, D.C. (projected opening 2020). What elements will distinguish this new facility? How will the core exhibition be a reflection of the unique Jewish community in Washington - a city that is at once local, national, and international. Attendees will be among the first to hear plans for the new facility and about the challenges building a Jewish museum presents in the 21st century.
