CREATIVE ASPECTS OF JEWISH CULTURE

Preserving a Legacy -- Remembering the Past for the Present and Future Generations.

Jewish culture is the culture of the Jewish people throughout the world. Culture, in itself, has many facets and many forms.
Included within the realm of culture are such creative endeavors as literature, art, cinema, theatre, dance, radio and TV, and music.
There are other aspects, and the Museum will gradually endeavor to try to adequately represent them, initially in the form of "exhibitions,"
which will be presented with the hope that it will inspire and educate the public to the beauty and history of the culture of the Jewish people.
