Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art
The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art teaches visitors about Jewish history and culture through its art collection and educational programs. By sharing the Jewish legacy, the museum hopes to promote peace and understanding among all cultures. The upper level of the museum contains the permanent collection of art and artifacts showing the 5,000-year history of the Jewish people from the pre-Canaanite era through the settling of the Jewish community in Tulsa and the American Southwest. Visitors learn about the exiles’ and immigrants’ travels to new home lands, Jewish practices, ceremonies, holidays, and overall heritage. The lower-level of the Museum features the Herman and Kate Kaiser Holocaust Exhibition, containing hundreds of objects donated by Oklahoma veterans who took part in the liberation of German concentration camps.
