The Jewish Journey
The Jewish Journey tells the history of the Jewish people from antiquity to modern times through 22 objects from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, brought together here for the first time. Many of the objects are little-known treasures and all 22 have remarkable stories. Spanning 4000 years of history and covering 14 different countries, the objects trace the evolution of Jewish life and culture from its earliest beginnings in Ancient Mesopotamia through time and space to the modern day.
'The Jewish Journey takes twenty-two of the great riches of the Ashmolean Museum- and with the guidance of Rebecca Abrams, the model of learned story-teller, provides a route through time and its objects to moments of illumination.' Simon Schama
