During the 1930s, prejudice toward Jews was widespread in American culture and everyday social life. Universities limited the admission of Jewish students through informal quotas. Certain neighborhoods and social clubs excluded Jews.

The Museum’s exhibitions are supported by the Lester Robbins and Sheila Johnson Robbins Traveling and Special Exhibitions Fund, established in 1990.
