The Museum includes space for permanent, rotating and traveling exhibitions; a small library and media center; an office; and a gift shop. Presentations at the Museum will have themes that resonate with Jewish people in New Jersey utilizing photographs, paintings, panel displays, artifacts, text, music and multi-media. Moreover, the JMNJ will serve a larger purpose, developing educational and cultural programs that promote greater understanding between individuals representing different backgrounds and religions. It will reach out to other groups, creating meaningful conversations and activities around topics such as cultural diversity, social justice, prejudice, nonviolence, and shared religious values. Moreover, it will form partnerships and develop age-appropriate activities for public, private and parochial school students. The location of the Museum in a city with many ethnic and religious groups provides a wonderful opportunity to establish itself as the first center for the study of tolerance in New Jersey.

This is a small museum, inside a Synagogue, that has good free attractions during the year. I have been to a good amount of them. It is worth the trip when they are open.
