Berend Lehmann Museum | Jewish History and Culture - Sponsored by the Moses Mendelssohn Academy

The museum is named after the court Jew Berend Lehmann (1661, Essen – 1730, Halberstadt). Today he is considered one of the most important court Jews of his time.

The Berend Lehmann Museum’s permanent exhibition,“Kosher, Klaus & Copper,” presents the history of the Jews in Halberstadt. The objects in the exhibition are for the most part donations from Halberstadt families. Therefore, the focus is on family biographies and the history(s) of the objects.
