Our new Museum Shop and Bookstore are stocking up for Passover. Each day we get in new stylish seder plates, honey dishes, kiddush cups, and candles, etc.

 

If you haven’t visited the Museum in a while, now is the perfect time to visit. Our new Museum Shop, you will truly find the best selection of Judaica in town!

School groups are continuing to tour the Museum in large numbers. It’s encouraging to see so many young people eager to learn about the Holocaust and how to fight antisemitism.

On April 9th, we will co-host a professional development workshop for educators at the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford titled: “The Girls Who Stepped Out of Line: Teaching About Women Who Changed the Course of WWII.”

Major General Mari K. Eder will be on hand to illuminate the overlooked stories of women from World War II. And educators will also hear the untold stories of Virginia women from Virginia World War II Heritage Alliance member archives.

On April 11th from 6-8 p.m., the Museum will host Initiatives of Change. Initiatives of Change is a world-wide community of people of diverse cultures and backgrounds, who are committed to the transformation of society through changes in human motives and behavior, starting with their own.

For updates on these and all the other programs coming up at the Museum, please visit the “Events” tab on our website.
