Program Support helps make possible the Museum’s educational initiatives, exhibitions, collections and conservation, and public programs

To make a contribution to these specific endeavors or to learn more about them, please contact Sharon Steinbach at 646.437.4335 or ssteinbach@mjhnyc.org.

The Museum’s education programs serve students of all ages and backgrounds, teaching them about civic responsibility, multicultural coexistence, social justice, and fighting intolerance in whatever form it takes—all in the context of modern Jewish history. Education support also provides free or reduced admission and transportation to youth from underserved public schools, after-school programs, and community organizations.

Special exhibitions offer stories in which Jewish life and the history of other cultures connect in remarkable ways.

Collection and Conservation
The Museum collects artifacts, photographs, and documents; is a repository of audio/video testimonies related to the Holocaust era; and has a permanent collection consisting largely of personal items donated by Holocaust survivors and their families, immigrants and their families, veterans and their families, and others. As we continue to expand our collection, the Museum regularly pursues conservation needed to prepare artifacts for display.

Public Programs
Public programs, which take place in our 375-seat Edmond J. Safra Hall, help audiences gain a greater understanding and appreciation of Jewish history and culture. Film screenings, musical performances, theater, thought-provoking panel discussions, lectures, book talks, and family programs are just some of the rich offerings that take place on a weekly basis.

If you prefer to make a general donation to the Museum, please contact the Development office at 646.437.4320 or development@mjhnyc.org.
