Join us for a conversation with collector Neil Keller, who will share stories of the athletes featured in his collection of Jewish sports memorabilia.  

Join us for an intimate conversation with collector Neil Keller to learn about the rich history and inspiring stories of some of the remarkable athletes featured in his collection of Jewish sports memorabilia.

In partnership with JCC Chicago.

About the Triumph of the Spirit: Jewish Athletes Before, During and After the Holocaust exhibit on display on our 2nd floor through June 16.

Throughout history, athletes have been a source of inspiration and hope.  As a society, we elevate our athletes as examples of aspirational excellence, heroes capable of amazing physical feats who expand our sense of what is possible for human beings. Through their struggles to overcome obstacles, we learn resilience and perseverance, and through their stories, we learn to imagine the unimaginable and to achieve what was previously perceived as unachievable.

This exhibit features reproductions of rare memorabilia from Neil Keller's collection. This dynamic exhibit tells the stories of the incredible resiliency and unshakeable spirit of courageous Jewish athletes in the face of the atrocities of the Holocaust and the foundation established for future generations of Jewish athletes.

This exhibit was made possible through a collaboration with Neil Keller and Susana Flaum, Gallery Director of the Judi & Allan Schuman Museum Gallery of the Adolph and Rose Levis JCC, Boca Raton, Florida, and is powered by JCC Chicago’s Growing Hope.
