Washington, DC in 2018

CAJM's next conference, "Responsibility and Empowerment: A Civic Role For Jewish Museums," will convene in the nation's capital next February.

Washington, DCAs our museums strive to fulfill their roles as both Jewish and civic institutions, they are asking important questions. What is our responsibility in Jewish and public life? What aspects of society need our critical attention? How can we best activate our potential? The conference will bring into these conversations key thinkers doing compelling work, including those navigating institutional possibilities with impressive results.

Program Chairs Marsha Semmel, Zachary Levine, and Juliana Ochs Dweck will help us explore the conference theme, framing important conversations about our institutions' role in society, our civic responsibilities, our ability to empower audiences, and the complexities of national narratives.

The vast museum resources of DC are certain to make this a rich and meaningful conference.

Mark your calendars for February 25-27, 2018, and check back here and in CAJM communications for further program details.
