Museum Logo

Located within the confines of Temple Emanu-El is a jewel of Jewish culture - the Herbert and Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica. Our museum collection features three galleries of Jewish art, religious ornaments and Temple memorabilia that are noted for their striking beauty and rarity. The Museum also sponsors an annual gallery lecture series and exhibitions, which seek to explore the intersections of Jewish identity, history and material culture.
