The mission of the museum (TJM) begins with the more than 3,000 objects in its permanent collection through exhibitions; preservation; acquisition; and value as an educational tool. An active exhibition schedule showcases both historic and contemporary collections, and the museum regards contemporary art as essential to a fully realized Jewish visual experience. The museum's Artists Collaborative is an essential part of all museum activities.
