The Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience, which closed after Hurricane Ida, has reopened. That first week, it offered free admission to all first responders and linemen in appreciation for their tireless work to restore power and assist the people of South Louisiana.
The Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience first opened in downtown New Orleans in May of this year. Exhibits and interactive experiences explore the many ways Jews in the American South influenced and were influenced by the distinct cultural heritage of their communities. The museum covers 13 states and more than 300 years of history – including the Colonial era, the Civil War, World War II, and the civil rights movement. For more information, go to msje.org.
