This site is an online version of an original exhibit that has toured Russia since 1995. The purpose of this exhibit about the history of Jews in Europe and in Russia has been put together to help understand their life, religion and culture, the adversities they faced and to present the dangers of intolerance.
This site contains a large and varied selection of the approximately 3,000 beautiful pieces of artwork by famous artists displayed at this museum that was founded in 1929. Although very slow to load, it is well worth the wait to view these regal animals.
