This is a tour of the world-renowned ANU – Museum of the Jewish People collection of synagogue models that tell stories of Jewish life around the world. These represent various communities and Jewish life relating to the synagogue: Social gatherings, study, creativity and prayer, as well as weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, fundraising, charity, etc. Alongside each model, an original ritual artifact is on display. The artifacts include historical Judaica, prayer books, publications and more.
