Every trading day the gong is sounded in Amsterdam to mark the opening (9.00 am) and closing (17.30 pm) of the trading session.
The current exhibition on Judaism is the result of close cooperation between the Nieuwe Kerk and the Jewish Historical Museum.
The exhibition, consisting of approximately 500 objects on loan from other museums, tells the fascinating story of three thousand years of Jewish religion, culture, art and history. The exhibition in the Nieuwe Kerk runs until 15 April. Cathelijne Broers, director of the Nieuwe Kerk and Hermitage Amsterdam, and Joël J. Cahen, director of the Jewish Historical Museum, sound the opening gong.
