Founded in 1967, the Sylvia Plotkin Judaica Museum has grown to be one of the Southwest’s most important institutions of education in the Jewish heritage. With a full program of exhibits, events and activities, the Museum offers all audiences a unique insight into the 5,000 years of Jewish culture.

The Permanent Collection display is built on a theme of Holiness, a basic principle of Judaism, as manifested in Torah, Shabbat, and Holiday observances and Life Cycle events. The exhibits, from all over the world, are vivid examples of the sameness of Jewish life as well as its adaptability in all cultures.  Many of the ceremonial objects  reflect the Sephardic Traditions from the Middle East Countries.
