Love at The Jewish Museum

A lovely exhibition has opened just in time for Valentine’s Day asking…

What does LOVE mean to you?

This is the first of three crowd-sourced exhibitions in 2015 at London’s Jewish Museum. It features everyday objects, historic artefacts and works of art all inspired by love.

Members of the public have submitted their own love-themed objects together with some really moving and personal (and sometimes surprising) testimonies of what these objects mean to them.

The exhibition, which is displayed in the museum’s Welcome Gallery, includes objects from numerous religious and cultural traditions and from across the world. The objects are shown alongside treasures from the museum’s Judaica collection.

The exhibition has been produced in collaboration with the Cultural Institute at King’s College London. They have put out the call for submissions for subsequent exhibitions on the themes of Journey and Sacrifice. Check out the King’s Cultural Institute website to find out more!
