13 Objects – 13 Stories

A Torah shield, a sculpture, a cushion: 13 unusual objects tell 13 stories of Jewish life. One of the tours of the JMB app leads right through the exhibition to eye-catchers of all kinds, some small, some big.

What would a museum be without its many objects, each rich in meaning? You can get a sneak peek of the objects here on our website.
