Time Out says

Jews have a long history in Singapore, with the first Baghdadi traders arriving in the 19th century. Since then, the small but significant community has made deep contributions to Singapore, producing businessmen, merchants, philanthropists, top legal representation and Singapore's First Chief Minister David Marshall. 

A new permanent exhibition at the first Jewish museum in Singapore traces the rich 200-year history of the local Jewish community. Located at the Jacob Ballas Centre, The Jews of Singapore permanent exhibition spotlights Jewish culture, religion and its most prolific community leaders. Presented through informational boards and engaging oral histories, you will learn about the likes of David Marshall and Manasseh Meyer and come to a new appreciation of their contributions to Singapore.

Entrance to the Jewish Museum of Singapore is free and by-appointment only. Book your slot via or the museum's official website
