About The Event

This event, created specifically for the Chelsea 400th Celebration, will be at Temple Emmanuel, one of Chelsea's two remaining Jewish houses of worship. The event program will tell the story of the Jewish people in Chelsea from just after WWI to right after WWII, when the community totaled almost 50% of the City and Eastern European immigrants' children began to find their footing as "Americans." Our multi-media event program will be interactive and inclusive, built around the following elements:

  1. History stations will display artifacts, ephemera, and personal memorabilia.
  2. Video stories, oral histories, and Temple Emmanuel's Jewish Chelsea Museum website, all accessible on monitors
  3. A live storytelling session
  4. Culturally relevant music
  5. Culturally relevant food

The event will be free and open to the public. In addition to being for all ages, the event's program materials and storytelling session will be accessible in English and Spanish.
