Down Home: Digital Exhibit

    The Duke Center for Jewish Studies, in connection with the Jewish Heritage Foundation of North Carolina (JHFNC) is happy to announce the birth of Down Home: A Virtual Museum. While hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians saw the exhibit in person at one of its several venues, Raleigh, Charlotte, or Wilmington, mounting our interactive site means that Down Home will live on for many years to come on the internet. All of the images are taken either from the original installation at the North Carolina Museum of History in Raleigh or from the last iteration of the exhibit in Charlotte, at  the Levine Museum of the New South, where it was featured at the 2012 Democratic National Convention. We hope that you enjoy seeing the exhibit in this new format and will share it with friends and recommend it to public schools for use in the classroom and to local synagogues for use in their respective communities and congregations. And please note that significant parts of the Down Home exhibit are on display at the Levine JCC in Charlotte.
