The Jewish Museum of Belgium
The Jewish Museum of Belgium is a place of tradition and openness to promote knowledge and understanding of history, religion and Jewish culture across time and space. The Museum strives to raise questions about the specificities, correspondences and reciprocal borrowings of different cultural heritages. It is also a meeting place, a place of discussion and exchange.
This museum brings together collections that reflect the life and history of Jewish people in our regions since the 18th century. These are works of art, objects of worship, posters, archive documents, and various objects related to Judaism and Jewish populations in Belgium and around the world.
On the occasion of the conference cycle "Tuesdays at the Museum", the museum regularly hosts authors, artists, journalists and sociologists for a presentation of their latest work and their latest research and works.
Guided tours are organised for primary and secondary schools, universities as well as for families. The tours of the exhibitions are anecdotal and interactive and offer the opportunity to take part in workshops or events. In addition, the Museum organises tours of the Great Synagogue of Brussels and other synagogues in Brussels, a discovery of Jewish traces in Brussels and Antwerp. The Museum also organises a variety of activities to promote intercultural exchange.
Permanent collections are not available at this time. However, temporary exhibitions allow the public to discover Jewish history and culture in a more specific way.
