Jewish Museum on Raleigh Street

I quick drive around Richmond Hill the other day had me stop in front of the Jewish Pioneer Memorial Museum in Richmond Hill.  Standing there I realised that I have actually never been inside the museum so I can’t really tell you what is inside from a first hand perspective.  I can tell you this though. The museum is housed in the original synagogue which was used by the Jewish community between 1912 and 1954.  The museum features a collection of memorabilia, ceremonial items and historical photographic displays such as a bridal gallery, Jewish ex-servicemen memorial and much more.  It is only open by appointment though which is probably the reason I’ve never had the opportunity to visit.
