Sam Azeez Museum of Woobine Heritage

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 to be developed as an agricultural colony. Housed in the historical Brotherhood Synagogue, the museum features both permanent and temporary exhibitions. Also included is a community sculpture, the Collective Memory Wall, where the Woodbine community has contributed personal memories of Woodbine. 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.
