The Jewish Museum of Greece will soon complete 45 years among Greek museums. We have chosen to celebrate this unusual Museums Day, by digitally presenting 18 characteristic and hopefully, interesting artifacts, each one connected to a human story, life and creation, from our Collections and Archival holdings. We have prepared this small offering working remotely, due to the corona virus pandemic measures, to honour the date, 18 May 2020. Furthermore, the number 18 is very significant in Jewish numerology, as it represents the numerical value of ‘hai’, meaning ‘life’, constituting thus the shortest and most potent wish one can express. In celebration of life and health therefore, we dedicate this presentation to museum workers and audiences the world over.
