CAJM members institutions such as these are making a difference in promoting tolerance:

Breman galleryThrough its exhibitions and programs, The Breman in Atlanta, GA explores the universal themes of respect for difference, responsible citizenship, human dignity, and community building through the lens of the Jewish experience. The museum features permanent installations on Atlanta's Jewish history and connections to the Holocaust, changing exhibits, films, lectures, performances, school programs, and seminars.

ILHMEC domeThe Illinois Holocaust Museum & Education Center is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust by honoring the memories of those who were lost and by teaching universal lessons that combat hatred, prejudice and indifference. The Museum exhibits, preserves and interprets its collections and offers education programs and initiatives that foster the promotion of human rights and the elimination of genocide.

NMAJH exhibitThe Smithsonian-affiliated National Museum of American Jewish History presents educational programs and experiences that preserve, explore and celebrate the history of Jews in America. It connects Jews more closely to their heritage and inspires in people of all backgrounds a greater appreciation for the diversity of the American Jewish experience and the freedoms to which all Americans aspire.
