Our NYC Personal Injury Lawyers Visit The Jewish Museum

Diversity is one of the things that make New York such a great city. New York City's culture is influenced by nationalities, ethnicities, and religions from all over the globe. There is a strong Jewish heritage in this town, as the city is home to one of the largest Jewish populations on the planet. This Jewish heritage is celebrated at The Jewish Museum in Manhattan. Here, you can learn all about the history, culture, artwork, trials, and tribulations of this ancient religious group. Our Manhattan personal injury lawyers have enjoyed the following collections here:


The "Accumulations" collection is a rotating collection of the accumulation of multiple examples of a specific type of work. Currently, this exhibition features a collection of 100 stereoscopic photographs of an area formerly known as the Holy Land. These photos depict such iconic holy sites as the Western Wall and the Dead Sea. The photos are one of the earliest examples of 3D technology and were shot at the dawn of the 20th century when stereograms were at peak popularity. At this exhibit, you can view the stereograms through individual stereopticons and see originals displayed in cases.


"Constellations" is an exhibition which explores how some of the museum's most important works are connected, but also stand alone as their own pieces.  This collection features 50 of the museum's most significant works and explores the thematic connections between them. Various aspects of Jewish culture, history, and values are shown through these pieces of art. The collection is made up of various forms of art from throughout history, spanning all the way from the 3rd to the 21st century. This includes a collection of Hannukah lamps and other religious objects from Europe, North Africa, Asia, and the United States. Artists featured in this exhibition include:

Masterpieces and Curiosities

"Masterpieces and Curiosities" is a series of installations which focuses on single pieces from the collection. The first iteration is on display through August 5, 2018, and showcases a charm bracelet created by a concentration camp prisoner in Czechoslovakia. There are also other works created in the same concentration camp on display here, along with images of the ghetto by photographer Judith Glickman Lauder.


"Personas" is a collection of portraits from ancient times all the way to the present day, which features either Jewish artists or Jewish subjects. These portraits help show how Jewish identity has changed throughout the years. Artists featured include:
