2021 Northeast Virtual Event

On October 19, 2021, supporters from across the Northeast region came together for the Museum’s annual fundraiser and reaffirmed our resolve to ensure the lessons of the Holocaust shape the way forward.

We heard from teachers, students, and multiple generations from the community who share in that commitment. Featured speakers Jeffrey Goldberg, editor in chief of The Atlantic, and Museum Director Sara Bloomfield discussed Holocaust history, antisemitism, free speech, and media literacy.

This moving experience is now available to watch and share:


Your gift is essential to helping the Museum meet rapidly evolving needs and increasing demand during these challenging times of escalating antisemitism and hatred.
