Irish Jewish Museum, Dublin city
The museum is located in the former Walworth Road Synagogue, which ceased to function in the mid-1970's, and was brought back to life again with the establishment of the Irish Jewish Museum Committee in late 1984. The Museum was opened by the Irish born former President of Israel Dr. Chaim Herzog on 20th June 1985 during his State visit to Ireland.
The museum preserves an important, though small, part of Ireland's cultural and historic heritage, it contains a substantial collection of memorabilia relating to the Irish Jewish communities and their various associations and contributions to present day Ireland.
The Irish Jewish Museum wishes to preserve and present for public display, and make available to research workers and students, material relating to the Irish Jewish community and Judaism in general.
