Through contemporary technology and a hands-on approach to learning, visitors experience Jewish history, values and traditions in a manner that inspires an increased interest in Jewish culture. The Museum serves children of all ages and their families, and is a resource and model, nationally and internationally, for interactive education on Jewish themes. The Museum is a setting for children of all faiths and backgrounds to gain a positive perspective and awareness of the Jewish heritage, fostering respect and understanding.

What activities do you offer?
Children are invited to climb on a giant challah loaf, “Shop” for kosher groceries in a scaled-down su- permarket, and jump the Noah's Ark ball pit. In every corner of the museum’s 50,000 square foot, $35 million facility, Jewish life and history come alive through creative and accessible multi-media activities designed to engage, entertain and educate. Technology is employed to reach modern children through their favorite medium: absolute excitement. Jewish history, values and culture are woven into specially designed computer games and videos.
