Building Detail
The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage is faced with more than 126 tons of Golden Jerusalem limestone shipped from Ashdod, Israel. The stone was mined in southern Israel, hand-chiseled, and then exported, making stops in Italy and Spain before reaching the Maltz Museum. The building is embraced by the “Wall of Remembrance.”

Inside, the Maltz Museum has more than 24,000-square-feet, starting with a lobby featuring a timeline of Jewish, American and world history with a stunning theater marquis and floor mosaic.
