The Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust offers free admission on the 12th anniversary of 9/11. Take in two temporary exhibitions: “Hava Nagila: A Song for the People,” a multimedia exhibit exploring the Jewish folk tune, and “Against the Odds: American Jews and the Rescue of Europe’s Refugees,” about the efforts to help European Jews escape persecution. Stick around for a free panel discussion with Clifford Chanin, vice president for education and public programming at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum; Carol Willis, director of the Skyscraper Museum; and Charles J. Urstadt, founding chairman and CEO of Battery Park City Authority. The talk will focus on the renewal of Battery Park City after 9/11, as well as the neighborhood’s connection to the World Trade Center site.
