The permanent collection at The Sherwin Milller Museum of Jewish Art includes iron and bronze works from early Jewish history (think 3200 BCE), work by Israeli artists like Reuven Rubin and objects from the Holocaust. Of interest to the Oklahomans who have visited is the museum's collection of memorabilia chronicling local Jewish history.
