Craig E. Wollner Exhibit Fund
OJMCHE’s exhibits include community-based and traveling exhibits related to Jewish cultural heritage and fine art. Our exhibits are developed with the goal of engaging a diverse community, to provide opportunities for Jews and non-Jews alike to understand the Jewish experience as a paradigm for cultural survival and inter-cultural understanding.
OJMCHE’s on and off-site education programs bring the rich and vibrant culture, stories, and traditions of Jewish communities in Oregon to the region’s schoolchildren.
OJMCHE holds the world’s largest collection of documented and visual history of the Jews of Oregon. Our archive includes artifacts, fine art, photographs, records, and ephemeral material dating from 1850 to the present. Our research library is widely used by students, scholars, and the general public.
