On display September 29, 2023 – January 6, 2024

Come see the All-Electric House in a new light! "Jewish Holidays in the All-Electris House" is a collaborative exhibit between the Johnson County Museum and The Michael Klein Collection at The Temple B’nai Jehudah. 

This exhibit presents a charming blend of tradition and mid-century modern style, inviting visitors to explore the rich tapestry of Jewish holidays within the context of the iconic All-Electric House. 

Gain a deeper understanding of the heritage and traditions involved in celebrating Sukkot (a harvest holiday), Hanukkah (the wintertime “festival of lights,”), and Shabbat (the weekly Sabbath celebration). Displays will include a sukkah in the front yard, menorahs and other Hanukkah related items, and a variety of Judaica on display throughout the home.

This is the second collaboration between the Museum and The Klein Collection, the first being “Passover Traditions” presented in the All-Electric House in 2021. This partnership aims to provide a perspective on the significance of Jewish holiday celebrations held within the home in mid-century Johnson County, and present fuller and more inclusive history of our community.
