Powerful Jewish Art

The Jewish Art & History Museum is comprised of cultural and religious artifacts, photographs, historical documents, and art by many Jewish artists. The museum is held it what was once known as the Hotel D'Avaux built in the mid-17th century. The museum was established after WWII in order to preserve and pay homage to the Jewish culture that had been destroyed during the Holocaust. The American Jewish Restitution Successor Organization donated the first items to the museums collection in 1951, redistributing items that were stolen by the Nazis during the war. The museum’s first curator, Marie Chabchay, built up a collection of graphic works by Russian and German Jewish artists. Today the Jewish Art and History Museum provides guests with a large collection of religious and cultural artifacts as well as art from Jews around Europe. For a powerful and comprehensive Jewish experience check out the museum.
