To interpret the Oregon Jewish experience, explore the lessons of the Holocaust and foster intercultural conversations.
Bottom Line for Portland
The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education provides 30,000 visitors of all ages an historical context to understand bigotry and discrimination through museum visits, Oregon Holocaust Memorial tours, programs and workshops. In 2016, OJMCHE provided free admission and transportation to 10,000 students.
“The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education provides an essential resource for learning about the consequences of hate. Community institutions like this museum and education center show clearly that Portland and Oregon have no tolerance for hate.” —Sen. Ron Wyden
Ruth Roth will match all G!G donations to OJMCHE up to $5,000. Donors of $10+ will receive a free slice of Hot Lips Pizza. The Big Legrowlski is sponsoring a happy hour with 10 percent of the evening going to OJMCHE.
How far does a $10 donation go with your organization?
$10 provides transportation and admission for one student to participate in a 1 1/2-hour educational program at the museum.
How far does a $50 donation go with your organization?
$50 can send a local Holocaust survivor to a school in Oregon so that they can tell their story to middle- and high-school students.
