Join a special conversation in partnership with the Washington Post and the Tenement Museum and learn about the Jewish American story like you’ve never seen it before.

The storied museum and newspaper teamed up in December for an interactive essay that transports readers to a Lower East Side tenement. Hear from Philip Kennicott, a Pulitzer-winning art and architecture critic; Jenna Pirog, deputy editor for strategic initiatives at the Washington Post, who led the Lede Lab team that designed and developed the Tenement Museum project; Dr. Annie Polland, Tenement Museum president; and Chana Pollack, the Forward’s archivist.

Forward editor-in-chief Jodi Rudoren will moderate a conversation that will give a behind-the-scenes look into how the project was created, how new technologies are being harnessed to transform storytelling, and what this might mean for preserving and sharing Jewish history.
