A Is for Jewish
Journeys through Now in 22 Letters
A is for Jewish
Music and youth culture, commemoration and traditions, languages and homeland – 22 impressions depict the everyday life of secular and religious, long-established and newly arrived Jews in Germany.
Using the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the exhibition explores keywords, concepts, and what is “Jewish” in Germany today. In the process, light is shed on very different aspects of the German-Jewish present and perceptions of norms are critically examined.
Sample a Few Stations from the Exhibition
The post of a young Israeli who justified his move to Berlin with the cheap chocolate pudding prices at a German discounter made it from Facebook to the museum – and thereby triggered a debate in Israel. And where to find Berlin’s best hummus definitely belongs in a show on the German-Jewish present.
Anyone who is interested in contemporary Jewish culture in Germany of course comes across the new and interesting ideas that the new generation of Russian-speaking Jews bring to the Jewish community.

The exhibition was developed with Berlin school students, whose work is on show. At the special request of the students, there is also a “Chill Corner” with four bean-bag chairs and a Jewish pop playlist, as well as six interviews with musicians.
