Jews Museum in the former Jewish National House, today's Chernivtsi Culture Palace
The exhibit covers the period between the end XVIII and mid XX centuries. A considerable number of the displayed items are old books, documents, post cards, religious and everyday life items. Substantial attention has been given to the religious life of Bukovynian Jews. The museum makes its guests familiar with the Jewish cultural and political movement of the end XIX – early XX centuries, literature activities in Bukovyna, and the everyday life of Jews, their professions, hobbies and spiritual wants.
Topical sections of the exhibit were developed by research workers of Chernivtsi National University. Documents were provided by the State Archive of Chernivtsi Oblast, research workers of Jerusalem University (Israel), University of Columbia, Holocaust Museum in Washington and YIVO institute in New York (USA). The museum arrangement was supported by Hesed Shushana charitable fund, Ohr Avner center, famous regional ethnographers, collection owners and Diaspora representatives.
