Each shelf of the
display cases addresses a specific topic. Typical religious objects to
be expected in any Jewish museum - candleholders, objects used for
prayer and dishes for Kiddush - can be found next to objects of
everyday and social life and instruments of different professions.
Special attention is paid to pictures, poems, musical notes, and vinyl
records - creations of Jewish artists, writers and composers, whose
achievements Bukovina is proud of.
|| A Torah scroll, donated to the museum, is housed in a separate display case. It is framed
by a tallis
- a white-blue shawl with fringe that is used for prayers.
Another part of the exhibition is an interior "Inside traditional Jewish home".
It is designed to create the feeling that the inhabitants of the house
have just left the room and will be back in a moment to continue
for the Shabbat. .
"Inside traditional Jewish home"
There is a table with dishes prepared for the Shabbat dinner. The coat
rack holds traditional Hasidic clothing: a black coat, a hat, a woman's
headband, a child's kippah and a waistcoat for a teenage boy.
There is also a wall-clock with a pendulum in a wooden case and an old
chandelier with a green lampshade...
The interior is completed by Sefirat HaOmer - a special calendar to count the days from Passover
and a prayer for the Austrian Emperor Franz I written in Hebrew letters.
