Teaching Jewish Studies with Museums

By Jeffrey Shandler

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2010

This piece provides suggestions for incorporating museums in Jewish studies courses and is applicable to a wide range of other courses in the field. The author's suggestions include: museum visits to teach about both the museum's content and the museum itself as a cultural medium, virtual visits through documentation, publications and museum websites, looking at museums as artifacts and finally curatorial exercises where students can create their own exhibitions.
