The Jewish Museum in the Jewish Center Shalom Europa has a unique objective.

It focuses on the essentials of traditional Jewish life. i.e. the theological, fundamental issues as well as its implementation at home and in the synagogue.

It also portrays the allegation and confirmation in Jewish life during 900 years of Judaism in Würzburg.

The Jewish Museum invites all visitors to become acquainted with the canon of Jewish values. It encourages Jews to venture a knowledgeable orthodoxy, oriented on global Jewish life (in general), and which considers Jews to have played an important role in the cultural life of Würzburg, mainly dominated by Christianity, thus challenging the ability of the Jewish community to prosper.
