The Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education explores the Jewish experience in Oregon and teaches the universal lessons of the Holocaust through exhibitions, educational resources and opportunities for intercultural conversation. OJMCHE challenges visitors to resist indifference and discrimination and to envision a just and inclusive world.
Bottom Line for Portland
OJMCHE provides 30,000 visitors of all ages and cultural backgrounds a historical context to understand bigotry and discrimination through museum visits, Oregon Holocaust Memorial tours, and programs. In 2017-18, OJMCHE provided free admission, docent-led tours, and transportation for more than 11,000 students.
“Thank you to the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education. Your exhibits and presentations provided a great opportunity for us to learn about the history of human rights abuses, at home and abroad, as well as what we can do when faced with prejudice and bias.”
