The National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) will develop a small-scale traveling exhibition to broaden access to stories of the American Jewish people for schools, synagogues, and museums across the country. "Let My People Go: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews" will feature custom curricula, a programming handbook, and pre-designed marketing materials to inspire dialogue on contemporary issues of immigration, refugees, and religious freedom. The goal of this project is to increase public understanding of the movement to free Soviet Jewry, as told through the personal stories represented in the museum, and to increase study and programming around this subject nationally.
