The Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum is the preeminent museum in the United States devoted exclusively to 4,000 years of art and Jewish culture. Whether you visit our home in the elegant Warburg mansion on New York City's Museum Mile, or enjoy our collections and exhibitions online, you will find yourself on a journey through time and across continents.

Founded in 1904 with just 26 donated objects, the Museum has grown a thousand-fold, and its collections now comprise 27,000 items, ranging from archaeological artifacts to works by today's cutting-edge artists. Whether hundreds of years old or newly created, each object collected or exhibited by the Museum embodies an aspect of a truly universal story: at once ancient and modern, global and local, material and spiritual.

Reinventing Ritual

Click here for a slideshow from the current Jewish Museum show, Reinventing Ritual: Contemporary Art and Design for Jewish Life. This show surveys the avant-garde design of objects and art that renew Jewish practices. The nearly sixty works in Reinventing Ritual envision a more sustainable and harmonious future, where identity is indelibly connected to action, not image.
