My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for OREGON JEWISH MUSEUM INC, Portland, OR, USA
The Oregon Jewish Museum, with its exhibits and archives, has enabled me, and others like me, to connect with the lives, experiences, struggles and contributions to the greater society of Jews during the last 150 years, not in some far off places but right here in our own state. Much of the material the Museum has gathered and displayed was previously unknown to most of us. It has provided me, my family, and other families, among them non-Jews, with a greater understading of "our" role in Oregon's history.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
Its exhibits displaying aspects of Jewish life in Oregon that were either unknown to me and/or in which my forbearers played a tangential role. It is "real" history education.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Own or lease premises substantially larger than the cramped space it presently occupies. Besides making its full array of artifacts and documents available to the public, it would be able to reach out to the growing Jewish communities outside Portland.
