Your Jewish object on display!

A water bottle, a flamenco dress, an empty box – there is nothing Jewish about these objects at a first glance. But what makes an object Jewish? This question is explored in the theme room The Jewish Object in the new core exhibition. An object might “be Jewish” due to a personal association, meaning or memory.

One showcase in the exhibition is still empty for a reason: we are looking for your objects and stories! Please share them with us by sending us a photo of yourself, a photo of the object and the story behind it. We will regularly select one object, from the submissions that we receive, and it will be displayed in the museum.

In order to be put on show, the object needs to meet the following criteria:

  • The object should not be a Jewish ceremonial object.
  • The object should not be perishable.
  • The object cannot have dimensions greater than 50 cm (height), 40 cm (width), 30 cm (depth).

Do you have what you need for a submission? Then please send it to us at
