The Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust honors those who died by celebrating their lives - cherishing the civilization that they built, their achievements and faith, their joys and hopes, and the vibrant Jewish community that is their legacy today. In the Museum‘s core exhibition, personal objects, photographs, and original films illustrate the story of Jewish heritage in the twentieth century. The Museum‘s unique collection forms the solid foundation of this important archive, a significant educational resource for students, teachers, and scholars. In addition, the collection provides source materials for permanent and temporary exhibitions, and for traveling exhibitions.
The Morgenthau wing is the venue for performances, education and instruction, special exhibitions, remembrance, and special events. Special exhibitions afford the Museum the opportunity to complement the themes expressed in the core exhibition in greater detail.
