Day 20 of Jewish American Heritage Month: Visit a museum



Make time for some structured culture. The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco will unveil its “Beat Memories: The Photographs of Allen Ginsburg” exhibit on May 23. The new National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia houses several special exhibitions, including “Beyond Swastika and Jim Crow: Jewish Refugee Scholars at Black Colleges” (through June 2), and an enormous permanent collection. The Jewish Museum of New York has “Six Things: Sagmeister & Walsh,” the first exhibition of the Stefan Sagmeister and Jessica Walsh’s newly founded design firm. Plan an adventure to the Kansas City Jewish Museum or the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood, Ohio. If you need some lead time, the Alaska Jewish Museum will open in July. Go to for more locations.
