  • Synagogue and museum very interesting, it is worth visiting them. However, there is a neglect in the cleanliness and maintenance of it. Incompetent staff, not available to the limit of education. The service offered does not live up to the asking price.

  • An amazing collection, a most beautiful place. The building itself is wonderful, let alone how carefully curated is the collection. I spent most of my visit on the Leonard Cohen Exhibit, "A crack in Everything", which is among my most valued museum experiences ever. The gifth shop is amazing - and everyone was so kind! A must-see in NYC.
  • Great space with good exhibitions. I loved the one on Leonard Cohen which is really very well organized with a vivid portrait of the artist and the collection of art inspired by him. The restaurant in the basement is a good recommendation for a quick bite on style!
  • Lovely museum with a nice collection. I visited during the Leonard Cohen exhibit, which was really special. The gift shop offers a good collection of Judaica and the deli is delicious!
  • First visit since major interior renovations were completed. Has repositioned its offerings in regard to the relatively new Museum of Jewish Heritage (Holocaust Museum) at the south end of Manhattan island. The uptown Jewish Museum now focuses more on art, music, culture, and artifacts associated with a worldwide ethnic and religious population. Not just for Jews exclusively. Invites people from all cultures from around the world. Open Saturdays (Shabbas) for free, except Museum Store is closed. Hosts large temporary exhibits (such an interesting one about the late musician Leonard Cohen) and often publishes book-length exhibition catalogs. Security screening at entrance, for obvious reasons. Staff is respectful and polite.
  • Great museum. I went to the Leonard Cohen exhibition and it is a tremendous experience that would take you through the life and work of Cohen. The rest of the museum is quite different from what you have seen in NYC, the art pieces are stunning and the religious objects breathtaking. I would personally recommend to go with someone knowledgeable about the topic so you do not get lost in the museum.
