The Jewish Museum of Belgium was conceived almost 30 years ago and aims to introduce the Jewish history, religion and culture as well as encouraging dialogue and open-mindedness. Judaism is an integral part of the life of Belgium. Its heritage is presented through the introduction of the Jewish teachings and lifestyle, each structured by a set of millennial laws and traditions. From birth to death, Jewish life is punctuated by rites of passage accompanied by objects, symbols and celebrations detailed in this museum. Its ‘Nouvel Espace Contemporain (NEC)’ hosts temporary exhibitions dedicated to art and history, rising to the occasion of highlighting Belgian or international artists who illustrate the plurality of Jewish culture and life.
