OREGON JEWISH MUSEUM INC
November 7, 2009
My experience began many years ago with a position on the board.
I spend a couple of hours, once a week, archiving the material of Portland Section National Council of Jewish Women & The Historic Neighborhood House. I'm part of a team of 4 who have been working on this project for 5 years under the expert eye of Anne Prahl, the curator.
I am also an interviewer for the Oregon Oral History Project at the museum.
I am so impressed with the staff, interns and volunteers at the museum for their tireless work in a setting that is anything but luxurious.
I feel the museum is important for our state. Our Jewish population is small and our history is being well perserved by very capable, caring people.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
2 things: interviewing and working with my archival team
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Dedicated, focused on their work, professional--all working to make the museum great.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Buy a building
