Guided Tour

The Torah is the Holy Scripture of Judaism. Children all over the world learn the Hebrew script at an early age in order to be able to read the Torah. Visitors discover more about the meaning of the Holy Scripture for Jews today and their interpretation. A sound map of the world brings Jewish languages to life that developed in the Diaspora.

In the installation Why Follow the Law, Jews talk about their personal approach to religious commandments. Objects and everyday items tell of Jewish life practices such as the Jewish dietary laws (Kashrut) or the commandment of charity (Zedaka). A flamenco dress, a sewing cushion, and a crown provide insights into the diversity within Judaism.
