Three Centuries of Growth & Change
A History of the Jews of Monmouth County
Our Permanent Exhibit
Visitors of all ages are invited to experience our new
multi-media exhibit, view photographs, artifacts, and collected stories that bring this unique history to life.
This exhibit will resonate with anyone whose family was part of the great American immigrant experience.
Our Rotating Exhibit
Beginning with two sewing machines in his Red Bank house, Sigmund Eisner built a booming family business which provided enormous opportunities for him and his descendants to employ hundreds of Jewish immigrants, support the founding of Congregation B'nai Israel of Rumson and Temple Beth Miriam, and serve the Jewish community in a myriad of ways. Eisner committed to ensuring the continuity of the Jewish community even as he and his children honorably provided military uniforms for the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II, and later the Boy Scouts of America. This exhibit will include items on loan from the Eisner collection at the Red Bank Public Library and Jan Eisner.
The exhibit will be in place for the rest of 2023 and visitors can schedule visits by appointment or walk in when the Museum is open.
