Vision & Mission

As the Jewish Museum of Greece approached its 45th anniversary,

its vision for the coming years is based on its past achievements, the strength of its work, its acknowledged shortcomings and needs as well as the desire to continuously upgrade the visitor experience in its physical and digital space whilst, constantly observing and helping to shape current affairs on the basis of relevance, cooperation and openness.

The Museum’s priorities are:

  • To highlight in new ways and through increasing its dissemination, the strong message it already conveys on the long history and unique ancient tradition of the Romaniote as well as Sephardic Greek Jewish communities, by continuing its thorough academic research and study.
  • To upgrade its capacity for interaction by enhancing creative communication with its audience through flexible technologies as well as, offering innovative services and sustainable infrastructure so as to develop new research, exhibition and educational activities.
  • To expand its social work and the contribution of its humanitarian programmes for the respect, understanding and solidarity between different people, social groups and nations, through creating new partnerships and dynamic hubs for researchers and multipliers, thus, effectively serving the aims of social justice, dignity and memory.


The JMG aims:

  • To collect, preserve and exhibit all elements relating to the history, tradition and culture of the Greek Jewish communities.
    • To research, study and record the tangible and intangible cultural heritage of the Greek Jews and to communicate the results for the purposes of knowledge, education and enjoyment.
    • To introduce visitors of all ages and nationalities to the diversity of the Greek Jewish heritage, within the context of Greek and European history, by committing itself to renewing and upgrading their experience in its physical and digital space.
    • To observe the social pulse and to contribute to the formulation of the current reality, based on museum traditions and ethics and guided by the principles of relevance, synergy and extroversion.
    • To promote public dialogue and to cultivate intercultural understanding and respect among people of all religions, races, cultures and ethnic backgrounds, using lessons from the Holocaust.
