Digital Projects

Digital technologies grant unprecedented access to our collective cultural heritage. They allow scholars and visitors alike to interact with primary sources, share information, and generate collective discussions about the meaning of culture.

The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life uses a digital platform that integrates website, database and social media approaches to provide collaborative access to its collections, programs, and to make the work that happens behind the public face of the institution open and transparent.
