The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life
was established in 2010 after the transfer of the Judah L. Magnes Museum to the University of California, Berkeley. Its remarkably diverse archive, library and museum holdings include art, objects, texts, music, and historical documents about the Jews in the Global Diaspora and the American West. As one of the preeminent Jewish collections in the world, it provides highly innovative and accessible resources to both scholars and visitors.
The Magnes new home in downtown Berkeley accommodates research and teaching, and offers the general public a place to gather for exhibitions, lectures, performances and other events that foster community, learning, and growth.
