The Jewish Home

The Jewish Heritage Collection contains a rich assemblage of items frequently found in the Jewish home.  Some of these items correspond to religious activities which primarily occur in the home while others hold no religious significance but instead were or are omnipresent in Jewish homes.  The collection includes textiles, objects related to food preparation, jewelry, and items for personal use.  The JHC also has a variety of texts related to the Jewish home in the past and the present day.
