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 20th 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 20th 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 and celebratory Jewish life, among other items, and feature speakers and performances of Jewish culture.
