      Derfner Judaica Museum

      The Judaica Museum was founded in 1982 when Riverdale residents Ralph and Leuba Baum donated their collection of Jewish ceremonial art to the Hebrew Home. A refugee from Nazi persecution, Ralph and his wife, Leuba, had an intense desire to preserve and pass on to future generations the memory embodied in the objects they collected, the majority of which were used by European Jews before the Holocaust. In 2008 The Judaica Museum was named in honor of the late Helen and Harold Derfner. It opened in a newly furnished space in June 2009 with a permanent exhibition of the collection entitled, Tradition and Remembrance: Treasures of the Derfner Judaica Museum, that explores the intersections of Jewish history and memory. The Museum also features a rotating gallery space for modern art relating to Jewish life and culture.

      Museum Hours: Sun - Thurs, 10:30 am - 4:30 pm
