Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum on Fifth Avenue along New York City’s Museum Mile houses the largest collection of authentic Jewish art and culture displayed anywhere outside of Israel. With a dedicated focus on both modern and contemporary art items and artifacts of Jewish history, its permanent exhibition, “Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey” is comprised of more than 26,000 objects and is supplemented by regular rotating- as well as special-exhibitions-combinations of fine art and artifact, often interdisciplinary in nature. The collection, while established in the library of the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in 1904 where it was housed for four decades- did not go public until 1947, when the widow of a prominent trustee donated the family mansion as a display venue. This little known gem in New York City offers guests a fantastically immersive illustration of the extraordinary diversity that has existed within the Jewish community itself throughout the ages.
