As an art museum rooted in representing the diversity of Jewish culture and identity, the Jewish Museum seeks to celebrate the shared human values among people of all religious and cultural backgrounds. We hope that our wide-ranging and thought-provoking exhibitions and collection provide a platform for dialogue about diverse ideas that can help combat bigotry, racism, and anti-Semitism.
Finally, lox without lines! Russ & Daughters at the Jewish Museum is now accepting brunch reservations on Saturdays. The legendary appetizing emporium’s uptown location will feature a completely Kosher, pre-paid set menu on Saturdays, allowing guests to experience a true day of rest in accordance with Sabbath observance. The Jewish Museum is open to the public 11 am – 5:45 pm and free on Saturdays. It makes for a perfect outing for friends and family from every background.
Still from Moon in the 12th House
At the opening night of the New York Jewish Film Festival, the New York premiere of the luminous Moon in the 12th House kicked off the festivities at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Marking the 26th opening of the NYJFF, a partnership between the Jewish Museum and Film Society of Lincoln Center, a special screening featuring director Dorit Hakim, actress Yuval Scharf and producer Leelu Shira—all from Israel—gave the film’s intimate exploration of the relationship between sisters and the nature of forgiveness center stage.
