Historical society welcomes new curator


IMG_6175Zachary Paul Levine, a Bethesda native and a graduate of Walt Whitman High School and the University of Maryland, is the Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington’s new curator.

Levine received an M.A. in history from the Central European University in Budapest before entering the Ph.D. program in Judaic Studies and History at New York University. He is married to Allison Farber, an interactive producer and former museum educator for new media at the Museum of Jewish Heritage. The two recently relocated to Washington with their 13-month-old son.

  1. Kudos to the JHS! I met the personable & creative Zack Levine at the Yeshiva University Museum & enjoyed his exhibits there. I look forward to seeing the new exhibits he most assuredly will produce at the Jewish Historical Society.

  2. Good morning Zachary:
    I see you included me in a “linked in” comment. I’m not sure if the contact was in error or not. My “dress” celebrating Golda Meir’s 100th birthday commissioned by the State of Israel organization (I’m pretty sure) is in the permanent collection of your venue.
