Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life

Abstract:

Much of this collection pertains to the Museum's founding and history and contains correspondence; minutes and by-laws of the Museum's Board of Trustees; photographs, blueprints, and floor plans; and information about the acquisition of its collections. The largest part of the collection, however, documents the history of the Museum's programming and individual Museum exhibitions. As a result, much of this collection takes the form of research notes; announcements; press releases; and exhibition catalogues. Other parts of the collection contain information on the museum's Women's Guild, the museum's docent program, and on its Institute for the Righteous Acts. The collection also contains the working papers of many former museum staff members and members of its Board of Trustees. Some of these working papers have been left as separate sub-series and others have been interfiled in the general records of the museum.

Transfer; Judah L. Magnes Museum; 2010.
Founded in 1962, and initially located in Oakland, California, the Judah L. Magnes Museum was the first Jewish museum founded in the western United States. In 1966, Museum supporters helped purchase and then relocate the Museum in the Jeremiah Thaddeus Burke mansion, in Berkeley, which was later declared a historic landmark. The Museum contains a large permanent collection of Jewish ceremonial, graphic, and fine art and an extensive one of Jewish textiles and clothing. It also hosts the Western Jewish History Center and the Harry and Dorothy Blumenthal Rare Book and Manuscript Library. The Blumenthal Library contains books and periodicals in a variety of languages; phonograph records and sheet music; manuscripts from India and Arabic-speaking countries; and a large collection of rare prayer books and marriage contracts. As a museum, it also hosts changing exhibitions that illuminate Jewish themes; present the work of Jewish artists in various media; and depict the history of Jewish communities and its individual members throughout the world. One of its largest collections consists of documents and artifacts that record the history of the Jewish community in India.
