Wheelchair Accessibility

Yeshiva University Museum’s galleries and the public areas of the Center for Jewish History are wheelchair accessible.

Mobility-impaired patrons may request a wheelchair free of charge in the main lobby. Wheel- chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Wheelchair-accessible restrooms are located on all floors of the Center.

Wheelchair Storage:

For patrons who wish to transfer to an auditorium seat from a wheelchair, we will store your wheelchair. For auditorium events, please alert the staff before the start of the program, if you will need assistance during intermission.

Assistive Listening Devices

Sennheiser SI1015 Infrared Wireless System devices are available free of charge for deaf and hard of hearing visitors. Please consult with front desk staff upon your arrival to arrange for the use of an assistive listening device (valid ID is required). Assistive listening devices are available on a first-come first-served basis.

Service Animals/Guide Dogs

Service animals are welcome in the Museum galleries and other areas of the Center for Jewish History. For auditorium events, service animals rest in the seating area of the disabled patron, rather than in the aisle.

Emergency Evacuation Procedures

Yeshiva University Museum and Center for Jewish History personnel are trained in emergency evacuation procedures to ensure the safe evacuation of all patrons, including guests with disabilities, in the case of an emergency. Additional emergency staff will be assigned to the accessible seating areas to provide assistance to patrons with disabilities.
