There is a dignity and poignancy about this museum which is fitting for the endless persecutions suffered by the Jewish people throughout history, not merely during the Nazi period but certainly including it. The memorable 2011 exhibition here was the "Chagall and the Bible" show. This show included 105 engravings produced for his 1956 edition of the Bible, The rest of the show was made up of works where Chagall had tried to reconcile Judaism and Christianity.
The museum is a cultural and scholarly precinct where Jewish achievement is celebrated and documented, displayed and performed and even for somebody of non-Jewish background, it is rich and fascinating.
Paris is incredibly well-endowed with museums and cultural heritage and this truly wonderful museum and cultural centre, is well worth a visit.
Located in the Marais, it is the traditional home of Jewish culture and commerce in Paris and its history is also tied to the history of Paris. There are many interesting Jewish shops and restaurants in the vicinity and some of these are worth visiting and trying, Food is excellent and often extremely reasonable for Paris.
