Founded in 1984, the museum is a non-collecting institution that partners with national and international cultural institutions to create exhibitions of the celebratory aspects of Jewish culture, history, art, and ideas.
The 63,000 square foot facility, featuring over 10,000 square feet of exhibition space as well as a multipurpose room, houses the museum's exhibitions and programs in visual, performing, and media arts.
