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?
Georgia is our museum’s pet dog. She knows the place inside out and loves telling all about her adventures at the museum. There’s a lot to discover!
Look and don’t touch? We keep some objects handy: under a blanket for touching, guessing, and searching throughout the exhibition. Thus, Jewish life in Hohenems can be experienced with all our senses.
In the Limelight
The kids’ stations at the museum invite to a performance. Flickering and glowing, they show us various scenes of Jewish life in Hohenems back then and today.
– Language then and today
