Beit Almin – Eternal Home
Two distinct narratives comprise the Beit Almin – Eternal Home exhibition. One of them focuses on the history of the Jewish necropolis in Warsaw’s Praga district; the other one presents the traditional Jewish religious and cultural approaches to death and burial. Among others, the visitor can: gain an understanding of the role of cemeteries in Jewish culture; acquaint themselves with the variety of sepulchral inscriptions and symbolism; learn about the funerary rituals associated with death and burial; and appreciate the characteristics of Jewish bereavement.
The Eternal Home exhibition came into being in 2016-2017 funded by the Jewish Community of Warsaw and developed through the combined forces of the “Senna Collective” and the Jewish Community of Warsaw. The Nissenbaum Family Foundation provided additional co-financing to the exhibition.
