(Oct. 23-Feb. 25) — A tin of Barton’s Almond Kisses. A stretchy yellow pouch of Elite gelt. That infamous Seinfeld babka.

Imagine the intersection of Jewish life and chocolate, and those are the markers that likely come to mind. Less likely, but no less pivotal, is the liquid delicacy that Inquisition-era Sephardic Jews introduced to France, or the 19th-century Viennese boychik’s invention that went on to become the Austrian it dessert, aka sachertorte.

Yes, there are hundreds of years of chocolate-swirled Jewish history that you probably haven’t had the pleasure of sinking your teeth into . . . yet. That’s where our new exhibition comes in.

Sunday through Thursday, 10 AM to 4:30 PM
Closed to the public on Jewish holidays.
