Power of Protest:
The Movement to Free Soviet Jews
June 26 – August 29, 2018
A traveling exhibit from the National Museum of American Jewish History, Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews documents one of the most successful human rights campaigns of the late 20th century. The panel exhibition showcases Americans' efforts in the late 1960s through 1990 to free refuseniks — Jews who lived in the Soviet Union and were denied the rights to live freely, practice Judaism, or leave the country due to their religion. The exhibit blends compelling personal stories of American Jewish activists and the Soviet Jews who immigrated to America and impacted our society in countless ways.
Power of Protest: The Movement to Free Soviet Jews is organized by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia, and this project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services MA-10-16-0208-16.
The Chase Family Gallery presents six to eight major exhibits each year, with works ranging from contemporary to classical to avant garde. Opening reception parties allow members to meet the artists, mingle with their friends, and get a sneak preview of the pieces on display.
Our beautiful Gallery is a treat for the eyes and nourishment for the soul, presenting the works of local, national and worldwide artists and craftspeople. We proudly present art in all forms: painting, sculpture, photography, glass and ceramics.
