The Jewish concept Mitzvah, "a good deed", is of central significance to Daniel Libeskind's architecture for the museum. The Hebrew word Mitzvah is literally stamped in the building: the letters in gigantic sizes form the walking area of the museum, in which the visitors move. Danish Jews were saved through the effort of their compatriots and neighbors during the tragic years of the war. In this way the Danish Jewish Museum differs from other European Jewish Museums, the history is manifested in the form, structure and light. The museum is located in the Royal Boat House built by King Christian IV, transformed into the Royal Library, and now shared with the Jewish Museum. The entrance lies in the courtyard, and is marked with ‘conversation spaces’, stones that appear to be lying around, random placed. The interior has a very Libeskind-like structure, in this case a theatre like décor for all material the museum collects, which can document significant aspects of Jewish life in Denmark.

Beverly Leffler says:
Dear Sirs: We are going to be in Copenhagen May 28th and would like to see the Jewish parts of Copenhagen. We have heard of this museum and would like to see it. Please help me know where you are and how we can see it. We will be staying in the Radisson Royal. Is that far from the museum? Thank you for your kind assistance.
