[VIRTUAL] JTalks: Getting to Know the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience

Date: March 3, 2021
Time: 10:00 am

Join Executive Director Kenneth Hoffman as we explore the history of MSJE and the new vision of its rebirth in New Orleans. Kenneth will show details of new artifacts and new exhibits and will share ways for you to get involved in the Museum’s mission. If you have family roots in the South, he’ll want to meet you.

Kenneth Hoffman was born in Houston and raised in Baton Rouge. He earned a B.A. and an M.A. in history from Tulane University. Kenneth has worked as a grant writer for the New Orleans Museum of Art and as the curator of education at the Louisiana State Museum. He recently ended an eighteen-year tenure as director of education at The National WWII Museum, which he helped open on June 6, 2000. Kenneth is currently the executive director of the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience, which will open in New Orleans in 2021. Kenneth, his wife, and their two daughters live in New Orleans’ Black Pearl neighborhood, yet don’t eat at Camellia Grill nearly enough.
