Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education
Backstory and Context
The Oregon Jewish Museum (OJM) and the Oregon Holocaust Research Center (OHRC) functioned simultaneously as independent organizations for nearly four years. A merger agreement was presented to each respective board of directors and by December 2013 the two groups began addressing the remaining legal, economic, and logistical questions raised by the merger.
Combining the two organizations into the Oregon Jewish Museum and Center for Holocaust Education (OJMCHE) allowed both the OJM and OHRC to more effectively fulfill their original missions. Education programs offered by the OJMCHE not only explore Jewish art, culture, and heritage of the Pacific Northwest but also promote the responsible teaching of the holocaust.
