This year marks 100 years since the start of the First World War.  Our new exhibition, For King and Country?, will explore how war threw into question what it meant to be a British Jew, from those who served in the trenches to those who experienced war away from the battlefield.  Curated in partnership with the Jewish Military Museum, the exhibition will run from 19 March - 10 August.

Jewish Museum and Jewish Military Museum Partnership
The Jewish Museum are working in partnership with the Jewish Military Museum to explore their fascinating collection. This project will ultimately see the two museums come together to tell stories of Jewish life, history and heritage.

We have received funding from the Arts Council England to allow us to work more closely with the fascinating objects in the Jewish Military Museum collection. A research assistant and archivist, Sarah Fairhurst and learning officer, Tom Furber, have been appointed to develop new interpretation and programmes around key objects including the Association of Jewish Ex-Servicemen and Women Memorial Window designed by Abram Games.

As part of this project our World War I exhibition will showcase the Jewish Military Museum collection to tell the multi-faceted story of Jewish involvement in the Great War.
