The Morgenthaus have embraced the promise of America since their arrival in 1866. Wanting to contribute to their country and their causes, they dedicated themselves to public service. This exhibition told the story of three generations of a family – exploring the fascinating ways in which their service to others changed the course of world events, American politics, and Jewish history.

This exhibition was made possible through generous funding from the Isenberg Family Charitable Trust, Marina and Stephen E.Kaufman, Lois and Martin Whitman, Jack Rudin, and New York State Senator Eric T. Schneiderman. 

Media sponsorship is generously provided by Manhattan Media.
