Dr. Karen Wiley Sandler, the Chancellor of Abington College of Penn State University discusses the college's vital role in the region, its place within the university and its exciting future.

Michael Rosenzweig, President and CEO of the National Museum of American Jewish History talks about the museum's journey from its birth in 1976 to the threshold of its dramatic new home on Independence Mall. Designed my a renowned architectural firm, the new museum (which opens in November, 2010) is destined to be an instant attraction within America's most historic square mile. But the museum won't be just about history. Instead it will be an ever-changing showcase for the American journey that tells the story not just of the Jews in America but, by extension, of every ethnic group that came to call America "home."
