Museum of Jewish Heritage, New York
The Museum of Jewish Heritage, located on Edmond J. Safra Plaza in New York City’s Battery Park, is a “living memorial to the Holocaust”. It honors those who died by celebrating their lives and the civilization that they built: their achievements and faith, their joys and hopes, and the vibrant Jewish community that is their legacy today.
In addition to the galleries featuring films, testimonies, and a collection of more than 15,000 artifacts, photographs, and documents, the Museum complex contains Edmond J. Safra Hall, a state-of-the-art theater suitable for films, lectures, and performances; a memorial “Garden of Stones”; classrooms; a resource center and library; and expanded gallery space for temporary exhibitions. It offers a wide range of educational opportunities for schools and teachers, including an extensive Speakers’ Bureau.
The Foundation was a major partner in the Museum’s construction and provides ongoing support for special exhibitions and general operations.
