2021 Annual Appeal

Scroll down to donate!

Dear Friends of the Jewish Heritage Museum,

What a year it has been for us all!  Despite our hopes that the Jewish Heritage Museum could open to the public in a very limited way, the building has remained closed to all but our small staff and occasional volunteer Board members to keep the business functioning. 

 

But this does not mean that the Museum has been idle!  Far from it!  During the year, the Museum’s Board has worked to adapt to our new reality, learning to meet virtually, and then to produce programs and outreach opportunities to stay connected to all of you!  Some of the programs that have been offered include a Virtual Jewish Film Festival, a research discussion about the Jews of China, and a presentation on Jewish Women in American Film. In addition, we offered two online exhibits – Artists from Within: Creations in Quarantine and Jews of India: The History and Practices of the Bene Israel, Cochin, and Baghdadi Jews.

 

Where would we have been without our supporters and volunteers this past year? With the generosity of donors not only for our Annual Appeal, but during the year as well, and thanks to the benefits of PPP loans, the Museum has remained relatively stable.

 

We are here because of you.  The Museum is committed to our community and continuing our efforts to preserve the past and present of Monmouth County Jewish roots. As we move forward, we will continue to include more virtual programming, updating the Museum space to hold in-person events once it is deemed safe (this will be coming soon!), and serving the Museum’s mission. 

 

Despite the events of this past year, one thing will never change:  we will continue to do our very best to seize the moment as we carefully plan for the future.

 

Please support the Museum by donating to our Annual Appeal by June 30, 2021, as every contribution makes a difference. You can donate by mailing a check, by calling (732) 252-6990, or online at www.jhmomc.org. Your gifts in any amount are deeply appreciated – it is your support that matters!

 

With Gratitude,

 

Jessica Solomon
