Danish Jewish Museum. Dansk Jødisk Museum. מוזיאון יהודי דני דאַניש אידישע מוזיי

The Danish Jewish Museum (or the Dansk Jødisk Museum as it is known in its native land) of Denmark (or Danmark as the country is named in its native language) is located in one of the oldest parts of Copenhagen inside the Danish Royal Library’s old Galley House,  a former 17th-century boathouse.

“The Danish Jewish Museum is situated in the former Royal Boathouse, with a new entrance from the garden of the Royal Library. The idea for the design came from the Hebrew word mitzvah, meaning a commandment, obligation, or good deed.”
ref: DAC & LIFE, Copenhagen X G, Danish Jewish Museum

The Danish Jewish Museum is a dynamic dialogue between architecture of the past and of the future.

VISITCOPENHAGEN addresses the fact that “The opening exhibition of the Danish Jewish Museum … is a broad presentation of Jewish life in Denmark through 400 years.”

Oh, if you are wondering about the entire title of this Roland’s Ramblings entry and the words in the Hebrew alphabet, דאַניש אידישע מוזיי are the words in the Yiddish languge for Danish Jewish Museum, and מוזיאון יהודי דני are the words in the Hebrew language for Danish Jewish Museum. Also, just in case you may not know, both Yiddish and Hebrew are written from right to left.
