Mishpachah Festival

21st May 2023

The Hebrew word Mishpachah means family – we invite you to join ours. The day-long Mishpachah Festival will celebrate and explore Jewish genealogy, heritage, and immigration with JewishGen, the Museum’s genealogy arm, and other partners. Overlooking the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the stories of Jewish families and experiences around the world through time will converge in New York City at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The festival will feature music, activities for kids and families, Jewish genealogy lectures, cooking demonstrations, Jewish heritage panels, and more.
