Jewish Music in all its Diversity in the Core Exhibition

From the chanting of the Talmudic period to contemporary compositions – music and sounds play a part in both religious and secular Jewish life. In the Musicroom in our exhibition you can immerse yourself in a service of worship, hear the sound of a shofar, and listen to centuries-old and modern music. On this page you will find playlists with religious music and playlists with secular music from the core exhibition.
