The Jewish Museum is located on New York’s Museum Mile and is dedicated to exploring Jewish art and culture for people of all backgrounds. Founded in 1904, it is one of the oldest Jewish museums in the world and houses the largest collection of Jewish art, artifacts and ceremonial objects outside of Israel. The museum’s impressive modern art collection includes Man Ray’s Self-Portrait with Camera (1930), Marc Chagall’s Old Man with Beard (c.1931) and Andy Warhol’s Ten Portraits of Jews of the Twentieth Century (1980). Its permanent exhibition Culture and Continuity: The Jewish Journey explores the evolution of Jewish culture from antiquity to the present day, showcasing the remarkable breadth of the collection.
