Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust honors those who died by celebrating their lives - cherishing the civilization that they built, their achievements and faith, their joys and hopes, and the vibrant Jewish community that is their legacy today. The core exhibit is organized around three basic themes: Jewish Life a Century Ago, The War Against the Jews, and Jewish Renewal. The 2,000 photographs, 800 historical and cultural artifacts, and 24 original documentary films in the Museum''s core exhibition represent just a small portion of the approximately 15,000 objects and 3,600 oral histories in the Museum''s collection. Visitors, especially those with no immediate association with Judaism or the Holocaust, are prompted to make personal connections to the culture and history of others while reflecting upon their own roles in society in new ways.
