Traditions - A look at our collections

From cradle to grave, religious life is governed by laws and customs. These traditions are present in everyday life as well as during rites of passage and celebrations marking the Jewish year. Both special and universal, these rites allow everyone to mark the important moments of life. They also make it possible to establish a bond at the heart of a collective, as well as with the sacred. The exhibition begins with the story of a modest synagogue inaugurated in Molenbeek in 1946, shedding light on the journey of a family and a community after the Second World War. The rites within the synagogue, as well as the musical traditions of East and West which are attached to it, are here brought to light.
