What's happening at the Museum?


New Exhibit

Our new permanent exhibit opens on Veterans Day, November 11, 2014! The grand opening will feature speakers and refreshments. Dedication ceremony at 3:00.

For the first time at NMAJMH, a core exhibit will take visitors from 1654 to the present showing Jewish participation in the American military. The exhibit will feature historical artifacts from a Revolutionary War rifle to a camouflage kippah designed to honor a casualty of the War in Iraq. Photos, video, and interactive media will illustrate the full experience of those Jews who have worn the uniform of our country.


Remembrance Walk on Target


The Remembrance Walk waits for engraved pavers!

Remembrance Walk on Target – The Remembrance Walk now holds over 240 inscribed pavers with over $75,000 raised for the museum! Congratulations all who have donated to this noteworthy endeavor. Be a part of it - help preserve the contributions of Jewish Americans to maintaining the peace and freedom of the United States of America by purchasing a paver. Contributing to the NMAJMH Remembrance Walk Program is a great way to honor a family member or memorialize a loved one. Also, a paver on our new museum walkway makes a wonderful birthday or holiday gift.


New mini certificate program


There are many reasons to say something and now there is a good reason to say it. The NMAJMH is starting up a new mini campaign within the Certificate program. From now until February 28, 2013, NMAJMH will provide ONE free certificate for every four blank certificates ordered. That is FIVE 6 x9 blank certificates for $40.00 instead of $50.00! Certificates have to be ordered at the same time. For more information, contact Mike Rugel at 202-265-6280 or mrugel@nmajmh.org. Click on Museum Store here on our website.
