The Jewish Museum Works With Theaters, Restaurants, Historical Sites And Other Partners To Offer Exciting Programming Packages
The National Museum of American Jewish History is now working on an ongoing basis with community partners – theaters, historical sites, museums, restaurants, and more – to create exciting opportunities available exclusively to groups, so that your experience can expand beyond the actual walls of the museum.
Some of the ongoing opportunities include:
• Beth Sholom: Combine your visit to the museum with a visit to the National Historic Landmark Beth Sholom, the only synagogue designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Packages start at $19 per person for groups of 15 or more.
• Congregation Mikveh Israel: Augment your visit to the museum with a visit to Philadelphia’s oldest Jewish congregation. Experience the traditions of a 200+ year old, active, Sephardic congregation and learn about their and Philadelphia’s history by visiting their cemetery. Packages start at $15 per person for groups of 15 or more.
Hurry to experience some limited time opportunites:
• The Franklin Institute presents Dead Sea Scrolls (May 12-October 15): The museum partners with the Franklin Institute to bring your group a one-price ticket to view the NMAJH and the Dead Sea Scrolls. The latter exhibit features the most comprehensive collection of ancient artifacts from Israel ever organized. Packages start at $24 per person.
• EgoPo Classic Theater’s performance of A Dybbuk (May 30-June 17): Add to your NMAJH experience by seeing Tony Kushner’s production of A Dybbuk. As part of an ongoing Jewish Festival of theater, this story of love, ghosts and faith set is set in a 19th century Polish village where a wedding celebration is interrupted by a supernatural presence.
