A Message of Remembrance from the Augusta Jewish Museum

As International Holocaust Remembrance Day approaches on January 27, 2021, it is being recognized worldwide in many ways. One of the education pillars of the Augusta Jewish Museum, Phase One scheduled to open by July 2021, is "Remembering the Holocaust". Let us never forget the six million Jews and many others who perished in the 1940's through no fault of their own. The AJM displays will educate about The Holocaust and teach about tolerance, antisemitism, racism, and more. To learn more about The Holocaust, please visit our online Virtual Museum. Click Here

Did the Jewish People
Invent Earth Day?

In a sense, yes they did. While Earth Day as we know it started in 1970 the 16th century kabbalists (mystics) in the land of Israel created the Jewish Holiday of Tu Bishvat to commemorate an ancient custom of bring fruit from young trees to the temple as an offering. In the late 19th century Zionist Pioneers seized upon Tu Bishvat as a day to celebrate tree planting and the greening of Israel. Today Tu Bishvat is a day for planting trees and becoming ecologically aware.
