Collection Highlights


The museum collection includes more than 650 pieces that date from the
14th century to the present day and can be separated into two main categories:
History of Emanu-El and Judaica.













































The collection features unique objects, precious objects and more humble ones, all infused with a value of their own as examples of ritual objects, household objects and memorabilia. Each incorporates a component of Jewish history. Click on the images above for more information.

During the summer of 2013, the Herbert & Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica received a prestigious grant from the David Berg Foundation. This grant allowed in part for a revitalization and a revisioning of our permanent collection.
