Founded in 1904 in the Library of the Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) of America – where it remained for nearly four decades – the Jewish Museum is now located along New York City's Museum Mile. The museum is at the intersection of art and Jewish culture for people of all backgrounds. It is dedicated to the enjoyment, understanding, and preservation of the artistic and cultural heritage of the Jewish people through its extensive collection of antiques, ceremonial objects, and notable exhibitions. The museum presents talks, lectures, performances, and interactive events in order to engage general audiences, students, educators, and visitors from all walks of life.
