Bert and I are both featured in the Missoulian this past Monday. The article covers the Leiser's Footsteps museum exhibit that we created. This exhibit explores the lives of remarkable Jews who settled in Missoula.
In 2018, when anti-Semitic flyers appeared around the college campuses and local houses of worship, the idea of telling stories of Jewish settlers' importance in building Montana communities was hatched. This is just the first of many exhibits Bert and I will develop. As we dig through murky historical records and attics, we are developing insights into the early period of Montana with fresh eyes. We intend to turn these stories into travelling exhibits for museums around the country.
