National Museum of American Jewish History

Telling the story of what america has done for the Jewish people and what Jewish people have done for America


The National Museum of American Jewish History is the only museum in the nation dedicated exclusively to collecting, preserving and interpreting the dynamic story of American Jewish history.  It also collects and preserves artifacts, and exposes visitors to changing exhibitions and complementary programs.   By focusing on the experiences of one ethnic group and its relationship with the larger society, the museum illuminates ethnicity in American life.   Its location at Independence Hall Mall, the birthplace of American liberty, is ideal for an institution that celebrates the freedoms that have made it possible for all Americans to flourish.

What We Do

Although we rarely fund “bricks and mortar”, our founder and CEO, Ed Satell, believed that the museum would play a vibrant role in illuminating and expanding our understanding of the American experience.

With a significant multi-year gift, which is memorialized on the Founders Wall of the Museum, Ed Satell through the Satell Family Foundation and The Progressive Business Publications Charitable Trust, became a founding sponsor for this unique patriotic and heritage resource.
