This museum is great! And it's open on Christmas. :)It's a little small, but with a wealth of objects and photos. There are menorahs, mezuzim, and other ceremonial objects (many from the "Old Country"), as well as photographs of Jewish Immigrant families. Accompanying the visual goodies is an ample amount of historical and background information. While we were waiting outside to go in the museum on Christmas, they were handing out Hot Chocolate! How nice.
