Capital Jewish Museum Covid-19 Special Objects Collecting

The Capital Jewish Museum needs your help to find special objects to feature in our exhibitions, which will explore the intersections of Jewish identity and participation in civic life in the nation’s capital from 1850 to the present. Help us by donating a personal object documenting your life in the Washington area! Our priority is 3-D objects, but we’ll also consider memorabilia and photographs that help tell these stories.
