The mikveh

This medieval ritual bath, one of the most important archaeological finds relating to Anglo-Jewry, was excavated in 2001 in Milk Street in the City of London. It is the starting point for both the historical and religious stories that are told throughout the Museum displays.

The lobby and stairwells feature more key objects from the collections, including a painted banner from the London Jewish Bakers' Union.
