FRIENDS & DONORS

Association of Greek Friends

Σύλλογος Ελλήνων Φίλων

The Association of Friends of the Jewish Museum of Greece played a decisive role in the establishment and development of the Museum, the acquisition of its legal status and its housing in a privately owned neoclassical building.

The “ASSOCIATION OF FRIENDS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM OF GREECE” was founded in May 1982 and is one of the founding members of the non-profit foundation “JEWISH MUSEUM OF GREECE”. In fact, three of the seven members of the Board of Directors of the “JEWISH MUSEUM OF GREECE” are nominated and come from the Association. 

Among the aims of the Association are:

(a) the development of relations between the members of the association, and the promotion of the collections of the Jewish Museum of Greece to the wider Greek and international community by any appropriate means.

(b) The strengthening of the interest of the Greek and global youth in the history of the Jews of Greece, their life, customs and traditions.

(c) To cooperate with other similar Associations in Greece and abroad, for the exchange of scientific knowledge, achievements and ideas.

(d) The development of any kind of educational, cultural and recreational activity (lectures – recreational and artistic events – excursions – film screenings, etc.) for the preservation and promotion of Greek and Jewish culture – literature – history and art and in general any other event with the aim of strengthening the Jewish Museum of Greece.

Today the role of the Association has changed to ensure the future of the Museum, actively contributing not only to finding resources but also to the dissemination of the Museum’s work:

The story of the 2300 years of Jewish presence in Greece. The excellent thematic exhibitions it organizes. The regular organization of Student educational visits to the “Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum”. The JMG’s participation in important European programs and campaigns of international organizations on occasions such as the International Day of Remembrance for the Victims of the Holocaust, the continuous fight against anti-Semitism. The participation in the celebration of the 200 years since the Revolution of 1821. The organization of educational seminars for teachers on the teaching of the Holocaust and seminars for members of the security forces on anti-racist education. The Association currently has around 150 members, who, both with their regular moral and financial contribution, and with the donation of objects for the JMG collection, contribute in a moving way to the achievement of the Museum’s goals.

The Jewish Museum of Greece is a private non-profit institution of its kind that collects, preserves and exhibits all features of the history, tradition and culture of the Greek Jewish communities. Through thorough scientific research and humanitarian programs, we attract visitors of all ages and nationalities, create paths of connection, and showcase the ways in which Jewish values are expressed and understood.

Benefactors

The Jewish Museum of Greece owes a lot to its benefactors, whose donations made possible not only its establishment and survival, but also its continuous development into a modern Museum of high standards. The Greek State and official bodies of Greek Jewry have mainly taken care of and contributed to the Museum with their sponsorships, while donations from private individuals are also important. The names of the benefactors are honored in the Museum by placing honorary plaques or by dedicating certain rooms and areas of the exhibition.
