"The Jews of Albuquerque in the
Twentieth Century:
Building Community along the Rio Grande"

The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History
Through April 2, 2017

The organized Jewish community of Albuquerque has roots which go back over one hundred years. Though our community is one percent of the total population of the city, Jews have been leaders in business, law, medicine, as well as in the arts and inter-group relations. This exhibit will present highlights of the growth and development of the Albuquerque Jewish community in the context of events in our city and in the world during the twentieth century. The presentation will look at contributions made by many as well as present artifacts of Jewish life in home and synagogue.

"The Jews of Albuquerque in the Twentieth Century: Building Community along the Rio Grande" is a community history project that will be presented in the Keleher Gallery. The purpose of this exhibit is to demonstrate how Jews built community among themselves and in a larger and more diverse Albuquerque community. This exhibit will display photographs, artifacts, and Judaica and ritual celebratory Jewish life, among other items and feature speakers and performances of Jewish culture. 

Rabbi Paul Citrin worked to put this exhibit together.
