The Mane Katz Museum is the former house and studio of the Expressionist painter Emmanuel Katz who lived from 1894 to 1962. Katz lived and worked in the whitewashed house for the last four years of his life. In the 1920s Katz lived in Paris and exhibited his works with a group of Jewish artists from the Ecole de Paris. A similarity between Katz's works and those of fellow members Marc Chagall and Chaim Soutine is the recurring theme of village life of Jews in Eastern Europe. The museum contains Katz's paintings, drawings and sculptures as well as his collection of rugs, seventeenth-century antiques from Spain and Germany and Judaica items.
