Every summer, the Jewish Museum Berlin invites visitors great and small to the cultural summer program in its garden. Featuring a big summer party, the well-loved Jazz in the Garden, readings, concerts, and discussions in the special exhibition – we invite you to get to know the museum at its best.
Be it with an ice-cooled lemonade in a deck chair or enjoying a picnic in the shade of the plane tree grove – you got to know the museum and its spacious garden from its sunny side!
Cultural Summer 2018
Our Cultural Summer program is entering its fourteenth year and has advanced from a well-kept secret to a fixture on Berlin’s cultural events calendar.
Inspired by our current exhibition Welcome to Jerusalem, this year’s program of concerts and readings is dedicated to the pulsating art scenes of both Jerusalem and Berlin. The artists we invited have special personal connections to the “Sacred City.” At Jazz in the Garden, the Berlin-based Kayan Project will take you on a musical journey to the Middle East and the Shalosh Trio from Israel will fill the garden with everything from full-throated rock to electronic dance beats. The concerts by the Elias Duo and the Doron Segal Trio will feature classic and contemporary jazz styles.
We are launching the Cultural Summer with our big summer festival in the Museum Garden, where we will talk about our latest projects and take you on exploratory tours of the empty rooms of the Libeskind Building and the Children’s Museum in progress. And, of course, we will celebrate summer with music, fabulous kids’ programs, Jerusalem street food, iced lemonade, lounge chairs, and sunny dispositions.
