Esther’s Place

Continue your experience even after leaving the Museum! Pop into Esther’s Place, our museum gift shop and bring home a memory of one (or more!) of the many stories you heard during your visit.

Our shop wants to help you tell the story of your visit just like master storyteller and long-time shop manager Esther Weiner envisioned. We want to enhance your future experiences by carrying books on local, national, and international Jewish culture and history. Our shop also includes exhibit-themed gifts for the kids and family members of all ages to help foster their own stories, memories, and community relationships!
