Holocaust Memorials: Teaching the Wrong Message? A Challenge to the Orthodox Community
For observant Jews, a museum about Judaism is almost a contradiction in terms. Judaism is a living tradition, as is every aspect associated with it. A museum is a place where the treasures of the past are displayed. A Kiddush cup and candlesticks in a glass case in a museum are sacrilegious. They belong on a Sabbath table in a Jewish home.
