The Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum in 2004 celebrated its Centennial year, marking the gift, in 1904, of 26 Jewish ceremonial art objects to The Jewish Theological Seminary by Judge Mayer Sulzberger.
Over the past 100 years, the Museum has assumed its role as a major cultural institution for New York City and the world. The Jewish Museum is an art museum exploring Jewish culture. It is both a source of inspiration and knowledge for an audience of visitors of all cultural backgrounds, and a special touchstone of identity for a diverse population of Jewish people. As we begin the Museum's second century, we invite you to a "virtual" exploration of an institution in which past and present meet to pose questions and foster dialogue about the future.
