- The result of a partnership between the Ministry of the Arts and the City of Paris in 1998, this museum is dedicated to the diffusion and conservation of Judaic art and culture. The collections shown (documents, objets d'art, clothes, prints, paintings, tombstones, furniture) depict the Jewish communities, their migration, customs and history. Among the documents presented, the Dreyfus affair (through Emile Zola's J'accuse) and anti-Jewish drawings remind us of the torments of antisemitism. Do not miss Hannukah's silver lamp, the pieces of furniture from the Italian synagogue and the traditional costumes. Discover through many avant-garde paintings the talents of Mané-Katz, Modigliani, Soutine and Chagall. Temporary exhibitions are regularly organised.
