New Exhibit on Women in the Military

The National Museum of American Jewish Military History in Washington, D.C., will soon boast a new exhibit profiling the experiences and contributions of Jewish female veterans of major U.S. wars and discussing women’s historical role in war efforts.

The exhibit will consider how Jewish women overcame discrimination based on their sex and their faith to become war heroes. The Women in the Military: A Jewish Perspective is slated to open on March 5, 1999 and will continue throughout this year and next.
