Kniha hrála v životě Židů vždy důležitou roli. Byly to především soukromé knihovny, které v ghettech vznikaly a které tvořily základy prvních veřejných židovských knihoven zřizovaných v 18. století v Itálii a později v německy hovořících zemích. Mezi první takovéto patří knihovna pražské Židovské náboženské obce.

It would be hard to find an object that presents the Jewish culture and religion more aptly than the Torah scroll. The reading from a parchment manuscript which contains the Hebrew text of the Five Books of Moses – the Divine Teaching handed over to the people of Israel – is the central moment in the Jewish synagogue liturgy.

Melissa Shiff - ARK / ARCHA

September 14, 2006 – January 2007
Jewish Museum in Prague - former Small Pinkas Street, at the intersection of Valentinská and Široká.
 

"The museum functions as Noah's Ark did in the Tanakh (the Hebrew Bible) -- to salvage and save what might otherwise be destroyed by natural disaster and catastrophe. Therefore ARK seemed to be the perfect metaphor for a project about the museum and particularly about this museum that was able to salvage thousands and thousands of objects during the Holocaust."

The Jewish Museum in Prague in one of the oldest such institutions in Europe. Yet it was not the first to be established in what was to become Czechoslovakia. That distinction belongs to the Jewish Community of Mladá Boleslav who several years earlier put together a small collection of ritual objects that were not in use. The Jewish Museum in Prague, however, represented the true beginning of Jewish museology in the country.

Form of the Scroll

June 22 – July 26, 2006, open daily 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. except Saturdays and Jewish holidays.

If we were to seek a material object that most aptly symbolizes Jewish culture, we would probably choose the Torah scroll. This strip of parchment contains the Hebrew text of the Pentateuch, the public reading of which constitutes the core of the synagogue liturgy. Both the text and the object itself have a unique position in the Jewish religion and are considered to be holy.
