We believe that education is the key
to fighting hate
that leads to the intolerance that can end in genocide.

That's why we created CHAIM - a traveling museum exhibit for schools, congregations, workplaces and communities around the San Francisco Bay Area.

NExt SHOWINGS

CHAIM ON THE WALL at Reed College, Portland OR July 28-31


BRING CHAIM TO YOUR COMMUNITY

CHAIM is a traveling exhibit. We can bring it to your synagogue, school, organization, or location in a two formats.

CHAIM 20

CHAIM 20 is our interactive, 20-square-foot footprint display with standing walls allowing a directed movement throughout the exhibit. It is also highly interactive with displays, worksheets, and more.

CHAIM ON THE WALL

As the name proposes, this is our on-the-wall exhibit, excellent for spaces where a standing wall is less than ideal. Lobbies and libraries love this display. It’s presently on display at the Addison Penzak JCC in Los Gatos, California.

OUR CORE VALUES

Our core values are encompassed in the call to WAKE UP:
Witness, Act with TACT, Know, Empathize, Upstand, and Prevent

WHAT OUR VISITORS SAY

CHAIM contains a wealth of information for students and adults alike. We had 7th graders and their parents, 9th graders and adults tour the exhibit. Participants were totally engaged with the material, stopping to read long passages to understand the events. The bold headlines and highlighting draw participants’ eyes to major topics giving them a starting place to their learning. Accompanying materials hit the highlights. There are activities for different learning types including those who learn best from pictures, articles and books.

Each group that toured the museum came away with new facts and understandings of a wide variety of topics from life before the war, events that led up to the war, and what we can do living in our present. This is a wonderful exhibit and I cannot wait to book it for next year and present it to an even wider audience in my community. Highly recommend.
