The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust is New York’s contribution to the global responsibility to never forget. As a place of memory, the Museum enables Holocaust survivors to speak through recorded testimony and draws on rich collections to illuminate Jewish history and experience. As a public history institution, it offers intellectually rigorous and engaging exhibitions, programs, and educational resources. The Museum mobilizes memory to teach the dangers of intolerance and challenges visitors—including more than 50,000 schoolchildren a year—to let the painful lessons of the past guide them to envision a world worthy of their futures.
The Museum employs a staff of talented, creative, results-oriented professionals, working in a spectacular setting in Lower Manhattan and committed to the vital mission of educating diverse visitors about Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Museum of Jewish Heritage is unable to accept new volunteer applications at this time – with the exception of the Speakers Bureau. Please keep checking in as we will announce when our programs are resuming. To inquire about volunteering for the Speakers Bureau, please follow the specific instructions below.
The Museum of Jewish Heritage sends Holocaust survivors, World War II veterans, and children of survivors who volunteer for the Speakers Bureau to address a variety of groups, ranging from schools and synagogues to nursing homes and community organizations. Speakers meet thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds and introduce them to the importance of history, memory, and hope. This program is one of the most important outreach activities conducted by the Museum and is extremely effective in generating awareness of the Museum and its Holocaust education mission.
If you or someone you know is a Holocaust survivor, World War II veteran, or a child of survivors, we welcome them to share their story as a member our Museum’s Speakers Bureau. We will set up a one-on-one call with you to learn more about your story and your availability to speak to groups. To schedule a meeting, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646.437.4202.
