 Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life

Never before the creation of the State of Israel did Jews of so many origins live together, and in such a stimulating environment, as they did in the land they soon started calling in Hebrew i-tal-yah, an “Island of Divine Dew”. The exhibition highlights Italian Jewish art and artifacts from The Magnes Collection.
