Traveling Exhibitions

The National Museum of American Jewish Military History often creates portable versions of the exhibits on display in the Museum galleries. These displays are available for purchase to place in your area community centers, schools, fairs, or malls. They are designed to be convenient ways for supportive individuals or groups to publicize the NMAJMH and its exhibits to segments of the public who are unable to visit the Museum in Washington, DC.

Please see the following list of displays which are currently available:

Hall of Heroes: American Jewish Recipients of the Medal of Honor - 4 panels

The Medal of Honor is America's highest award for military valor presented to those who have performed an act of such conspicuous gallantry as to rise "above and beyond the call of duty". The recipients of this honor include only some 3,400 of the tens of millions who have served their country since the Civil War. Among these heroes are fifteen men of the Jewish faith. Their stories are among the many examples of bravery and gallantry shown by Jews in the United States armed forces.

Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans Honors Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Jack Jacobs

An American, a Sailor, and a Jew: The Life and Career of Uriah Phillips Levy - 11 panels

This display depicts his tumultuous life and his refusal to walk way from his identity as a Jew or away from his concerns and obligations.

GIs Remember: Liberating the Concentration Camps - 16 panelsOpens in New Window

Personal stories of Jewish GI's who aided in the liberation of the concentration camps.

Fallen Heroes: Remembering American Jewish Casualties of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom and New Dawn - 5 panels

In honor of the sacrifices made by these men and women the NMAJMH has created a small exhibition entitled Fallen Heroes: Remembering American Jewish Casualties of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Fallen Heroes features photographs and information on all of the Jewish men and women who have died while serving with the U.S. armed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. The display also provides a graphical breakdown of where service members died, how they died, and who they were. We hope that this exhibit will serve as not only a memorial to those who have died, but also as a reminder of the long legacy of Jewish service in the American military.

All panels are 20" x 30" black foam-core quarter-inch sheets with laminated black and white images, (unless otherwise noted). The panels are easel and table friendly and have enough space at the top of the panels for the sponsor to include a title if desired, by using Velcro strips. Each traveling display is available to purchase for $100.00 (this cost includes shipping to the destination. We ask that the sponsor allow one month for processing, from the date the funds are received to the day of delivery). For more information, contact the Museum Coordinator, Mike Rugel at or call 202-265-6280.
