The Jewish Museum Hohenems poses a challenging question to the monotheistic religions: Is it possible to view the—according to Jewish, Christian, and Muslim tradition—“one and only God” as other than male?

 

Permanent Exhibition

Kreise ZiehenRoaming Around
Ages 10-15 | Emphasis: Jewish Hohenems
The most diverse personalities roam around the museum: counts, industrialists, innkeepers, musicians, and peddlers. They all tell us exciting stories of Jewish life in Hohenems back then and today.

Vom Feiern und FastenOf Celebrating and Fasting
Ages 12-15 | Emphasis: Jewish religion
We’ll supplement the historical objects of the permanent exhibition with fun and kitschy things related to religious practice today. In the process, we’ll learn about the background of Jewish holidays.

Kein ZurückNo Going Back
Ages 12-15 | Emphasis: NS and Holocaust
How to address this topic? We will investigate individual life stories and realize what happened to people in our immediate neighbourhood. This will provide a memorable addition to school lessons.
