Myra Kahn Adams is honored and humbled to lead a team of national and international Shroud of Turin experts to produce a permanent Shroud exhibit in Washington, D.C.  She is the Executive Director of, a ministry that began in November 2017 to promote education about the Shroud of Turin. Starting in May 2018, Myra tirelessly helped to spearhead the effort to convince the Museum of the Bible in Washington, D.C., to host a high-tech exhibit about the Shroud that culminated in the opening on February 26, 2022.

Then in March 2023, the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit opened its first mini-exhibit at the Catholic Information Center (CIC) in downtown Washington, DC. The grand opening event of a life-sized Shroud replica was on March 28, 2023.

The Museum of the Bible publicly acknowledged that the exhibit about the Shroud was their most visited and garnered the most media attention compared to all previously held exhibits since the Museum opened in November 2017. Building on that momentum, Myra and her team are excited about the prospects of hosting and producing the National Shroud of Turin Exhibit with the location and opening date known only to God.

Since 1997 Myra has been keenly interested in the Shroud of Turin. She and her husband, David, were blessed to have seen the Shroud of Turin in Turin, Italy, during its last two public exhibitions in 2010 and 2015.

Myra was born and raised Jewish (maiden name Kahn) and came to faith in Christ in 1975. She believes that the Shroud is physical evidence left by God to show proof of Christ’s suffering and resurrection to those who need physical evidence in order to believe that Jesus Christ is the Jewish Messiah, King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.

Aside from her passion for promoting Shroud of Turin education, Myra is a nationally known religious and political writer — her “second career” — after spending decades in advertising and later as a video production company owner in the Washington, D.C. area.

She currently writes a popular weekly Sunday Bible study series on that started in Feb. 2020. Then, encouraged by Townhall readers, the studies were compiled into two books, “Bible Study For Those Who Don’t Read The Bible” and Part 2, with the same title.

Myra has written extensively about the Shroud of Turin, notably an op-ed headlined: Shroud of Turin Exhibit at Museum of the Bible – Why You Should VisitAnd, for Myra's 100th Townhall Bible study, she featured the Shroud with quotes from the Museum of the Bible’s curators: A Quick, Compelling Bible Study Vol. 100: What the Bible Says About Christ’s Burial Shroud.

On the secular side, Myra Adams is a regular opinion contributor to The Hill — an influential political news site. Additionally, her credits include being a long-time contributor to Real Clear Politics, National Review, and Washington Examiner, to name a few.
