Beth Ahabah Museum and Archives - The Museum of Richmond Jewish History

The Beth Ahabah Museum & Archives is Richmond’s museum of Jewish history, art and culture. Located in the historic Fan District, the Museum & Archives is housed in an early 20th century row house adjacent to the 1904 sanctuary of Congregation Beth Ahabah. Beth Ahabah (House of Love) is the successor to Kahal Kadosh (K.K.) Beth Shalome, the sixth Jewish congregation in the nation.

The Museum & Archives houses an invaluable collection of documents, portraits, photographs, paintings and objects that provides a window to the lives, loves, contributions, defeats and triumphs of Jewish Richmonders since the days of the American Revolution.
