What people are saying:

I have seen many Jewish History museums, this museum is small but it has its own uniqueness. It is near the old Synagogue and it has vast collection of Jewish artists. The second floor they have a nice exhibition about the history of the Jewish people and Israel. A lot of artifacts that tell the story.Really nice!

    Diamond workers' exhibition

    Although not all people employed in the diamond trade (including the splitters, cutters, etc.) were Jewish, this museum is a logical place to offer an exhibition on them as well as their unionizing ac...
