Jewish Museum review Rate it

This collection of documents and artefacts relating to the Jewish community of Ireland includes a reconstruction of a late 19th-century kitchen typical of a Jewish home in the neighbourhood and, upstairs, a synagogue preserved with ritual fittings. The exhibition tells about events such as the pogroms against the Jews of Limerick in the 1920s. The museum is well arranged and has moving displays: among its exhibits is a letter, dated 1938, from the Irish Chief Rabbi to De Valera asking for six highly educated Jewish refugees (mostly doctors) to be admitted, and its almost casual rejection.
