This Portal of the Leo Baeck Institute represents a curated selection of items from the Institute’s Art and Objects Collection, its Archives, and its Library. The selected works range from engravings that depict Jewish life in German lands in the 16th century to abstract works by German-Jewish émigrés in the 20th century, as well as paintings and photographs of countless individuals. The Portal also features objects ranging from Torah scrolls and ceremonial lamps used in German-Jewish communities to personal items that German-Jewish emigrants took with them out of Europe. Taken together, this body of materials offers a visual record of German-Jewish history.
