Help make a difference

The Jewish Musuem is very grateful for the support we receive from trusts and foundations around the world. This support is vital in helping to spark imaginations, challenge prejudice and build interfaith understanding. 

A grant from The Sigrid Rausing Trust has enabled us to update and make available for touring an exhibition exploring the experiences faced by the 10,000 children who fled Nazi Europe on the kindertransport and the reception they faced in Britain. The exhibition, entitled the Last Goodbye, explores issues of prejudice, racism and indifference faced by these children.

A generous grant from the Edmond J Safra Philanthropic Foundation, helped us to house one of the most important archaeological finds relating to Anglo-Jewry – a medieval mikveh (ritual bath). This unique historical item, excavated in 2001 by a team of Museum of London archaeologists in Milk Street in the City of London, has pride of place on the ground floor of the Jewish Museum.
