The Female Side of GodApril 30 until October 8, 2017
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?
At Home: Diaspora
Ages 15-19 | Emphasis: Jewish Hohenems
There are many stories about history: about tradition and change, about integration and exclusion. Together we make a journey through Jewish Hohenems that, for many, became home in the Diaspora.
Of Celebrating and Fasting
Ages 15-19 | 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.
No Going Back
Ages 15-19 | Emphasis: NS and Holocaust
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.
