Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust
Inside Scoop: Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust
New York's Museum of Jewish Heritage—A Living Memorial to the Holocaust honors those who died in the Shoah by celebrating their lives, cherishing the traditions that they embraced, examining their achievements and faith, and affirming the vibrant worldwide Jewish community that is their legacy today. Although the museum centers on life before, during, and after the Holocaust, the obligation to remember is enriched and enhanced by a commitment to the principles of social justice, education, and culture. The Museum's three-floor Core Exhibition educates people of all ages and backgrounds about the rich tapestry of Jewish life over the past century.
The museum offers visitors a vibrant public program schedule in its Edmond J. Safra Hall. It is also home to Andy Goldsworthy's memorial Garden of Stones, as well as James Carpenter's Reflection Passage, Gift of The Gruss Lipper Foundation. The museum receives general operating support from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and is a founding member of the Museums of Lower Manhattan.
