Belief, Practice and Imagination

Jewish Museum, London

London's Jewish Museum tells the story of Jewish history, culture and religion, highlighting its contribution over time and its relevance to contemporary society in Britain.

​The Museum’s overarching themes of Identity and Diversity, Migration, Diaspora, and Combating Prejudice offer a central focus. They are considered at every level, from the ambiance and content of the galleries to the elaboration of interactive elements.

​Displayed across four permanent galleries, the Museum’s rich collections, archival material and oral history paint a rich picture of British Jewish life. Interpretation further explores contemporary social issues around immigration and settlement. Personal stories feature throughout, enabling visitors to view history and religious practice through the prism of individual experience.
