The Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage celebrates the history of the wave of immigration at the end of the 19th century that brought Russian Jewish settlers to the area known as Woodbine to be developed as an agricultural colony under the auspices of the Baron de Hirsch Fund. Housed in the historical Brotherhood Synagogue, the Museum's Mission Statement is focused on hate and prejudice reduction and education. Designated as the Cape May County Teaching Center for the New Jersey Commission on Holocaust Education, the Museum provides both onsite and in-classroom programming to students from 5th through 12th grades. Students are encouraged to learn about the past, exchange ideas in the present, and work towards a harmonious future.
From its beginning, Woodbine remains as a living example of the values and ideals of its founders.
The Sam Azeez Museum of Woodbine Heritage is committed to preserving the memory and teaching the history of those who created the legacy of Woodbine. To continue to provide the unique year-round programs offered by the Museum, we welcome your tax deductible gift.
The Museum is a designated teaching center for the NJ Commission on Holocaust Education.
