“Exhibit on Jewish Chicago an incomplete portrait”

My review of “Shalom Chicago” at the Chicago History Museum appears in the Times of Israel.

The exhibit boasts an impressive array of artifacts and knickknacks … But as descriptive and fascinating as much of “Shalom Chicago” is, it seems to confuse some issues, and it leaves one wanting in other areas.
