Experience a moving tribute and detailed account of the cultural history of Jews, Jewish life and Judaism in general. Take a journey back to the early roots of the South African Jewish community with interactive displays, audio-visual presentations and rare and fascinating artefacts. Marvel at the modern architecture of the museum itself, the contents of which mirror the fusion between the Old and New Worlds. Take note of the famous drawbridge feature, connecting the Old Synagogue to the new museum building, which symbolises a ship’s gangway along which immigrants would have been expected to walk. Don’t miss the added attraction of viewing the world’s finest collections of Netsuke – carved, miniature Japanese sculptures originating from the 17th Century.
If you need refreshments, Cafe Riteve is the perfect spot. You can take 15% off the bill.
