NJHS mourns the death of Hope Alswang.  Hope was our Executive Director from 1992 to 1997 and passed away on June 11th.  Working with a highly committed board and staff, many of whom she hired, Hope led the revitalization of the oldest cultural institution in the state.  The most tangible example of her leadership is the acquisition, renovation and move to 52 Park Place in Newark.  This new home gave NJHS a more visible and accessible location in an important downtown neighborhood near the New Jersey Performing Arts Center which opened shortly thereafter. Under her leadership, diverse collections were built, interesting exhibitions were developed and community outreach was established.   We will always be grateful for her commitment and service to NJHS.  Our thoughts at this difficult time are with her family and loved ones.
