Visited that place only outside but it is located at a beautiful, quiet place, ideal to rest. Italian Jewish students or tourists from Italy know that place and often care for a lively atmosphere.

A very small but really lovely museum of Italian Jewish art and life. Very well put together with fascinating information provided through computer interface. It is closed on Mondays.

We visited Nahon Museum of Italian Jewish Art and found it to be a pearl in Jerusalem and a must see for tourists and local residence. The Jewish art is presented in silver ,fabric and wood and from the 18 century. Great place to visit !!!

It is hard to believe that this small and interesting museum has been open since 1952! I spent 4 years in Israel in the 1980s and never heard of it. It was a great discovery. There are many interesting pieces on display, and a synagogue transplanted from the Veneto area. The man who sell the tickets is a great source... More

The Museum of Itallian Jewish Art is a little gem tucked inside a plaza off of Hillel Street in Jerusalem. It includes artifacts from a vanished way of life in Italy, complete with a synogogue that was transported piece by piece from Italy to Israel after World War II. It's a great place to go if you have an hour... More

See an old synagogue from the Veneto in use today in Jerusalem. See beautifully crafted and decorated items for religious use, including a most remarkable traveling mohel's kit -- not kidding! It's a small museum, but you'll want to give it some time

The Nahon Museum of Italian Jewish Art was a bit difficult to find on my first visit to Jerusalem several years ago, but has now become one of my favoured spots to 'pop in on' on each trip. Located up a flight of stairs on the second level of a gray stone building set at right angles to Hillel Street... More
