Join Jonathan Edelman, Curatorial Assistant, for a virtual walking tour and a presentation about the brand-new Capital Jewish Museum in Washington, D.C. You'll learn about the origins of the Jewish community in Washington and get an exclusive behind the scenes look at the new museum with renderings only shown to those who come on the tour.
The new Capital Jewish Museum will inspire visitors to connect, reflect, and act: connect across families and diverse communities, reflect on the relevance of the past to today, and act on behalf of their communities and values.
Jonathan Edelman was born and raised in Kansas City, moving to D.C. in 2016 to work with the curatorial team at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. He has a Masters in Museum Studies from The George Washington University and a Bachelors degree in Cultural Studies & Communications from Clark University.
