Overview

Located in nearby Utica, this unique museum traces the history of the Jewish experience in Mississippi from pre-Civil War Days through the Civil Rights movement and into the modern era. On display, you will find a number of artifacts that demonstrate the challenges faced by Jews in the American South, their lives and their triumphs. A short video presentation chronicles the journey of Jews from the Old Country to America and their acclimation to the culture of the largely agricultural South. The breathtaking exhibit of the work of world-famous photographer Bill Arron alone is worth the short trip to Utica.
