Opened by the Irish-born former President of Israel Dr. Chaim Herzog in 1985, the museum occupies the former Walworth Road Synagogue, which was located in two adjoining brick row houses in a one-time Jewish neighborhood and could seat 150 people. Its mandate is to “collect, preserve and present for public display material and artefacts relating to the Irish Jewish Community and Judaism in general and to make available such memorabilia to visitors, researchers and students.” (Chaim Herzog’s  father Isaac Herzog was Chief Rabbi of Ireland from 1919 to 1937.)
