Widely admired for its exhibitions and educational programs that inspire people of all backgrounds, The Jewish Museum is the preeminent U.S. institution exploring the intersection of 4,000 years of art and Jewish culture. The Jewish Museum was established in 1904 when Judge Meyer Sulzberger donated 26 ceremonial art objects to The Jewish Theological Seminary of America as the core of a museum collection. At the heart of New York City's famed Museum Mile, The Jewish Museum today maintains an important collection of 25,000 objects - paintings, sculpture, works on paper, photographs, archaeological artifacts, ceremonial objects, and broadcast media - and presents exhibitions that receive international critical and popular acclaim.
