The Jewish Museum is housed in the Warburg Mansion along Museum Mile at 92nd Street. It is a place that highlights Jewish art and culture, and patrons of all backgrounds are welcome. Founded in 1904, this institution was the first of its kind and is one of the world’s oldest Jewish museums. Their permanent collection boasts some 30,000 works of art and artifacts spanning about 4000 years of history. Furthermore, its education programs ensure that visitors will carry their legacy into the next generation.
The New York Jewish Film Festival is one of many events here. That festival celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016. In the same year, the Museum launched its Russ and Daughters restaurant (a kosher sit-down establishment/takeout counter) and first crowd-funded exhibitions. It also offers many accommodations for people with disabilities. Most recently, the Jewish Museum spotlighted the paintings of Florine Stettheimer.
