Please join us for a guided tour of the exhibit “Shalom Chicago” at the Chicago History Museum (1601 N. Clark – @ North Ave) on Sunday, March 3. This fascinating exhibit explores Chicago’s diverse Jewish community from the 1840’s to today. Using personal stories, over 300 artifacts, and multimedia programs, the exhibit explores how a small but dynamic community helped shape modern Chicago.
