Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme

France is home to the third largest Jewish community in the world, after Israel and the United States. The presence of the Jewish people goes back more than 2,000 years. This is one of the many reasons that will make you want to explore the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire du Judaïsme (mahJ). Located in the Marais in Paris - a neighbourhood where Jewish people already lived in the Middle Ages - it presents one of the finest collections in the world of objects of worship and art works in the majestic setting of a 17th-century mansion. The permanent exhibition retraces the history of the Jewish people of France, Europe and the Maghreb, through their art and their heritage. Its many temporary exhibitions, events in the auditorium and its educational activities, make it an important and dynamic centre for Parisian culture.
