Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County Will Participate in “Weekend in Old Monmouth”

Once again, The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County will participate in the annual "Weekend in Old Monmouth," an event when Monmouth County historical sites open their doors to visitors and waive their admission fees.

WHEN: Sunday, May 5, 2019, from 12 noon to 5 p.m.
The Jewish Heritage Museum is located in the Mounts Corner Shopping Center, at 310 Mounts Corner Drive Freehold, NJ, at the corner of Route 537 and Wemrock Road (between the CentraState Medical Center and Freehold Raceway Mall). It is on the second floor of the historic Levi Solomon Barn.

The Museum’s Permanent Exhibit, Three Centuries of Growth and Change A History of the Jews of Monmouth County, provides an overview of the waves of immigration which brought Jews to the area from all parts of the world to Monmouth County.

The Museum encourages families to bring children for “Weekend in Old Monmouth” to enjoy our interactive exhibit called “Youth Zone,” designed to appeal to elementary and junior high school children. The “Youth Zone” includes six cleverly designed standing books, each of which tells the story of a fascinating person who appears in the Permanent Exhibit.

In addition, an activity center will include jigsaw puzzles, a scavenger hunt which challenges children to find answers to clues within the Permanent Exhibit.

In addition to the Permanent Exhibit and children’s activities, the Museum is presenting an exhibit entitled Let’s Dish: Family Histories Through Dinnerware, telling the stories of local families through samples of their heirloom dishes. There is also a display of Passover items and Haggadahs.

There is much more to see and experience at The Jewish Heritage Museum.
