The Capital Jewish Museum explores the Jewish experience in the national capital region and inspires visitors to connect, reflect, and act—connect personally and collectively, reflect on the relevance of the past to today, and act on behalf of their communities and values. With its experimental spirit, the Museum connects the past to the present through thought-provoking exhibitions, dynamic programming, and creative public experiences. The Community Action Lab invites visitors to engage through hands on-activities, resources, workshops, games, and more.
