“Without memory, there is no culture. Without memory, there would be no civilization, no society, no future.” – Elie Wiesel
Join us to honor Deerfield Academy’s commitment to preserve and celebrate the story of human history and experiences through the lens of religion and spirituality.

Some items for display will include:

  • A centuries-old Torah Scroll from Czechoslovakia, saved from the destruction of the Holocaust.
  • An antique German Bible
  • A Hashemite Jordanian Qur’an, used during a memorial service for His Majesty King Hussein of Jordan, and given to Deerfield Academy by His Majesty King Abdullah, a graduate of the Deerfield Academy Class of 1980
