As a Portland area Jewish professional I often am in need of Jewish historical "stuff" - stories, facts, pictures, etc to keep my materials alive. OJM always has what I need, no muss, no fuss.

When I brought my 6th grade class to the museum's "Yes We Can" exhibit this past winter I was amazed at how much they learned about the history of discrimination and the status of minorities in Oregon. The Oregon Jewish Museum did an expert job in making this available to the public and with the teaching their staff provided to us. Thank you OJM.

This organization produces creative and stimulating exhibitions on a shoestring budget. I know the staff to be talented and dedicated and I've always enjoyed working with them.

As an historian researching western Jewish communities, the OJM has provided an invaluable resource through its archival collections. The curator/archivist has been incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. While they are limited in space (a problem soon to be rectified), they have created interesting and very professional exhibits on local Jewish history.

I have been exposed to the Oregon Jewish Museum through my work as a history professional in Portland, Oregon, and I have been impressed by the quality and quantity of programming, exhibits, and collections initiatives they provide the community -- especially with such a small staff. The museum's director works to make all members of the community welcome and to broaden understanding of the depth and complexity of Jewish experience in the Pacific Northwest, echoing broader trends in the historical community that seek to extend study throughout the twentieth century. I am particularly impressed by the substantial oral history program, a vital aspect of historical documentation that would not be accmomplished otherwise.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the energy behind doing good work. There is a feeling of forward motion, of reaching for lofty goals and energetically working toward them.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

have a stellar facility, hire staff to significantly increase outreach for collections and programming, and pay staff better wages (a struggle for all non profits).

The Museum team of professionals and volunteers works miracles with a very tight budget and very small space. The exhibitions that have been created over the years are absolutely first class. The Museum could not do what it does without the energy and creativity of an incredible group of volunteers. Thanks to them and the supporters in the community, the Museum will move to a new, larger location in December 2009. The Museum plays a vital role in both the Jewish and secular communities as a resource and collaborator for cultural and educational programming.

The Great!
