In the beginning, there was the word. Or was it the letter? Or the number? How the power of our culture's most basic symbols unfolds in the tension between religious tradition and the conventions of the modern world is the theme of the exhibition 10+5=God: The Power of Numbers and Signs.

The exhibition traces a surprising history of modernity, revealing little noticed connections between science, religion, and the everyday. In eleven thematic sections with a total of over 350 displays it presents a completely new perspective on 200 years of German-Jewish history.
