Bernard Museum of Judaica

The Bernard Museum of Judaica, formally the Herbert & Eileen Bernard Museum of Judaica is part of Temple Emanu-El on Manhattan's Upper East Side. The museum consists of three galleries. The first two galleries are often used for temporary exhibitions. The third gallery is the permanent collection which contains items of Judaica and Temple memorabilia. Some of the museum's more than 800 objects date back to the 14th century.[1] Not limited to items from Emanu-El's history, the collection also includes items from the histories of Temple Emanu-El, Temple Beth-El (merged with Temple Emanu-el in 1927), Ansche Chesed and Adas Jeshurun who merged to form Beth-El in 1974.[2]
