The New York State Department of Records announced Monday that the New Jersey State Museum is changing its name from the New World Museum to the National Museum of the American Jewish Experience.
The museum, which opened in the 1940s, is currently housed in the Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.
The name change is expected to bring thousands of visitors to the museum, a $1.8 billion, 1,300,000-square-foot facility in the heart of downtown New York City.
In an official statement, the department said that the museum “will be known as the National Center for Jewish Culture in honor of its founding.
This is in recognition of the contributions made by Jews throughout the centuries to our nation and the Jewish people.””
The Museum will also become a hub for the preservation of Jewish history, culture and heritage,” the statement continued.
The museum’s name change will not impact its operations, said Michael E. Tabor, a museum director who has been the museum’s vice president for three decades.
The museum will continue to operate in its current capacity, and will continue its work on Holocaust remembrance.
“The name of the museum is not changing,” Tabor said.
“There is still a New World museum and a New York Museum of Art, and all the museums will still be there.”
The museum was the first of its kind in the country, Tabor added, adding that it was “in a sense a symbol of the country’s diversity, and we have many different kinds of people.”
The New World, a collection of artifacts, artifacts and artifacts, will be called the New Museum of America.
It is slated to open in 2019.
The move comes amid a contentious national debate over the term “Jewish heritage.”
The National Museum for Holocaust Remembrance is set to open next month in Washington D..
C., and a new center to commemorate the Holocaust, the National Memorial for the Holocaust and Other Victims of Crime, is planned for the summer of 2020.
Tabor said the move is a positive step, but he said that there are some things that the new museum will not be doing, such as exhibitions.
“They will not have Holocaust memorabilia,” Taber said.
