The long history of the Jews of the American South has been described as a story of prejudice and privilege. I would add that it is one inextricably tied to our Jewishness and its impact on our relationships with our neighbors–black and white, rich and poor. I hope that the Museum of the Southern Jewish Experience will do justice to this complex and grand story, warts and all.
–Morris Lewis, Lexington, MS
With deep family roots in the South, our Directors are pleased to be a part of the capital campaign for the new Museum in New Orleans.  The stories of our families and their impact on our communities will bring further understanding and appreciation for Jewish heritage and culture to our country.

I have lived all of my 75 years in Lexington, MS, a small town which happened to be blessed by the presence of a substantial and prosperous Jewish community which contributed much that was good to the life of our community and frankly to my own life. Its Jewish population made Lexington brighter, a little more sophisticated, a little more tolerant, and a lot happier.
