“It is not only a matter, I believe, of religious observance and practice. To me, being Jewish means and has always meant being proud to be part of a people that has maintained its distinct identity for more than 2,000 years, with all the pain and torment that has been inflicted upon it”
— Golda Meir, Former Prime Minister of Israel
The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art exists to preserve the cultural origins of the Jewish people and showcase its beauty through fine art, Judaica, and the triumph of the human spirit. Through our programming, education, and exhibits, visitors of all backgrounds can develop a deeper understanding of the 5,000 years of Jewish history told through both accomplishment & despair and our cultural relics & artistic flare. The Museum invites you on this expedition to learn about the best and the worst of people and show you the beauty in art and culture that are intrinsic pieces of a broader, collective Jewish human experience.
