Dear visitors!

From October 2020 we are resuming the practice of offering free of charge guided tours through the Museum's permanent exhibition.

Congratulation to the holiday

Shana Tova u-Metuka!

с 18.09.2020

On the first evening of the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashanah) it is customary to wish one another a ‘good seal’ for the coming year with inscription in the ‘Book of Life’.
The Babylonian Talmud states:
‘Three books are opened on Rosh Hashanah: one for the utterly wicked, another for the irreproachably just, and the third for those in between. The irreproachably just are immediately inscribed and sealed for life. The utterly wicked are immediately inscribed and sealed for death. Those in between remain in the balance from Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur [the Day of Atonement]. If they deserve it, they are inscribed for life; if not, they are inscribed for death’ (Talmud, tractate Rosh Hashanah 16b).
Taken as a whole, all the customs of Rosh Hashanah amount to good wishes for the future, a reflection of the people's hope for a good, successful, and happy year.
