Favorites from the Collection

The collection of the Jewish Museum Berlin includes thousands of exhibits that are either given to the museum or purchased for the purpose. Some of their paths to us are windy ones and tell extraordinary stories about their owners or manufacturers. For the tour, curators and museum educators share information about their favorite pieces. Which is a favorite piece and why? Embossed silver, painted porcelain, drawings, sculptures and installations - the heart of the presentation is always why the object is so special and what is "Jewish" about it. Thus we read on the plate of the company Lazarus Posen Witwe "Run like a deer to accomplish your father’s will."

Every Sunday in June, 3 pm
Judaism - Christianity - Islam: A Cultural Historical Comparison

"The Lord our God is one Lord" - the three monotheistic religions of the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam, have many things in common: a written culture, scholarship, commerce, and mathematical systems. These similarities testify to their interrelatedness dating back many centuries and their mutual influences. This tour sets out to show current connections against the backdrop of historical developments: How are synagogues and mosques perceived in public space? What status is granted Judaism and Islam in Christian-dominated societies? Last but not least, the tour explores how religious minorities view themselves in present-day Germany?
