The Jewish World: 100 Treasures of Art and Culture, which is being published by Skirà-
Rizzoli in the Fall of 2014, is the first comprehensive catalog featuring the holdings of
The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.
With art and material culture hailing from India, Spain, Yemen, Germany, Tunisia,
Turkey, Morocco, China, Russia, the United States, and other regions where Jews once
lived or continue to live, The Jewish World gives insights into the richness and variety
of Jewish cultures.
Select pages from this lavishly illustrated volume populate an installation in the
Auditorium of The Magnes.
