Beginning with the 23 brave Jews who arrived in New Amsterdam (New York) from Recife, Brazil in 1654, America became the Promised Land for religious freedom and economic opportunity. Many immigrants settled in or near the Atlantic port cities of the United States, but many moved westward in search of gold and land, thus establishing Jewish roots in varying parts of the country.

In this series, The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County welcomes Jewish institutions from around the United States to share their histories and discuss the impact they make on their local Jewish communities. Learn about the initiatives these Jewish institutions are taking to further preserve the vast Jewish-American story. From the comfort of your home, via Zoom, meet and engage with representatives from different Jewish museums and historical societies that have been established throughout this country.

Funding has been made possible in part by a general operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a Division of the Department of State, through grant funds administered by the Monmouth County Historical Commission.

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 JHMOMC is a tax-exempt organization under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Now open to visitors by appointment, the Museum is handicapped and assistive-listening accessible. Masks and vaccinations are required.

The Museum’s Board of Trustees denounces racism and all forms of violence against any group, ethnicity, or race, and stands in support of any targeted community.
