Special Feature at the Bottom of Many of Our Exhibits

“Jews in the News” is a feature being added to many new and older exhibits in the Jewish Museum of the American West. “Jews in the News” will be a short article taken from a newspaper approximately at that time and that place showing activities of our early Jewish pioneers who were involved in all parts of the community – from commerce, politics, law enforcement, etc.

Unlike little Rabbi Belinski who had to be protected by Harrison Ford in “The Frisco Kid,” and the “meek” Sol Levy, the shop keeper in Edna Ferber’s “Cimarron,” Jews stood tall and were an important part of each community in the Wild West. (Note: Edna Ferber was Jewish.)

We’ve been receiving a fair number of photographs to add to many Exhibits send from their families. Send then photos to Curator@JMAW.org  Be sure to tell us what they show.
