This exhibition presents the cornerstones of Judaism: ordinary days, holidays and major life cycle events in Judaism. Some of them are common knowledge, as their origin dates back to the Bible. The Ten Commandments and the weekly rhythm of time have become part of our common cultural heritage. Our traditions were shaped by the changing circumstances and the continued reinterpretation of our ancient heritage. The time structure and the Jewish life cycle, however, continue to follow the ancient order of days. In the course of past centuries a rich object culture developed with a view to providing interpretation of Jewish written heritage and to be passed down from generation to generation. This exhibition showcases a selection of ceremonial objects, books and furniture from our collection. Across the halls the visitors will get a glimpse into the culture of ordinary days and holidays, and the Jewish life cycle. Please also visit the exhibition spaces of the Museum built in 1931. Please bring to mind the meaning of the windows together with the objects on display below them. Please also read the correlating captions: the voice of the rabbi and that of the curator, which, together, interpret Jewish material legacy. In this exhibition, approximately 300 items with their relevant explanations walked you, dear visitor, through the days of our lives, including holidays, customs and values. You could observe highly ornamented, priceless rarities, and simple, transformed items whose value is attributable to only the commandments performed with their help. Their unique stories gave insight into social and cultural historical phenomena, and one could learn how they were put to use before becoming part of the collection. In the exhibition you could also learn about Judaism’s relationship to space and time. In the first hall the displayed items related to the concept of time, whereas this hall presents items related to the concept of space. The closing wall of the exhibition is pointing to the East, towards Jerusalem. In our tradition, synagogues are facing east, and worshipers turn also to this direction. This direction invokes the past and the complete redemption to come. Here time and space overlap, representing the eternal circle of Jewish life in the face of destruction, persecution, expulsion, auto-da-fé and gas chambers. The title of the exhibition, TAMID, refers to always, recurring, constantly.
