Exhibit: The Hate Around Us at the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU

Through July 2024

Exhibit photos

Florida’s constitution, written in 1838, protected its citizens’ freedom of religion. However, no constitution can protect people from individual bias, group bigotry or the arrogance of ignorant minds. As numbers of Jews increased in Florida, so did the discriminatory acts against them, especially during times of economic or social crises. The Hate Around Us takes the viewer through over 100 years of antisemitism in Florida through artifacts, photographs, and historical documents, culled from collection of The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU and various private lenders.
