Field Trips

In addition to our permanent exhibition of Florida Jewish History, the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU presents two exhibitions that explore bigotry and antisemitism. Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated(LEDI), an immersive multi-media exhibition of paintings, photographs and original music reimagines the lives of young women and girls who were senselessly murdered during the Holocaust. The Hate Around Us explores the definition of antisemitism, and why it is important to understand and combat it. Together, these exhibits provide history and context to educate and build a world where understanding and empathy prevail.

The Hate Around Us on view January 28, 2024 thru October, 2024

Utilizing artwork, photographs, comic illustrations, written documents and advertisements, books and other ephemera, this exhibit will take a deep dive into the state of hate today. Hatred is growing and becoming more brazen, which necessitates shows like this. Culled from various prominent collections, it is a story that unfortunately keeps needing to be told time and time again.

 Lives Eliminated, Dreams Illuminated (LEDI) on view March 17, 2024 thru August, 2024

LEDI features remarkable portraits based on archival photographs of girls and young women whose lives were senselessly lost during the Holocaust. The lives they never had and the dignity they had stolen are reimagined via art and music. LEDI aims to tell their stories, personalize the horror they experienced, and provoke important conversations about the Holocaust and dangerous recent escalation of antisemitism.

Both exhibits contain images that may not be suitable for children under 14 years of age.

 Through hands-on learning, problem-solving and visual-thinking strategies, the students make connections between the museum’s historical building and collection and the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.
