The museum’s executive director, Zev Moses, and president, Sara Tauben, issued the announcement on Monday. “It’s sad and difficult for us to leave a space that meant so much to us, to you, and to the city.”  
 
The museum, which has to move out by June 30th, had up to 25,000 visitors a year providing guided tours of historic districts and buildings Jewish, collections of oral history, public programs and artifact exhibitions.

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak “We have moved quickly to bring as many of these activities as possible online, launching a series of digital cultural and social events… thanks to a variety of grants, our student fellowships, microgrants, and community engagement work that helps our community connect to Jewish life will continue online as well.” 
 
The statement asserted “We will continue to connect our audiences to Montreal’s Jewish life and identity, to share our diverse heritage, and to create new cultural experiences ” While looking for a new location, the focus will be to continue to grow their audience online and fulfill its mission.  
 

Windows into the past, the exterior view of the museum

“Our vision, built around our community members and their unique identities, passions, and creativity, is for Montreal to be home to a thriving ecosystem of diverse Jewish arts and culture, where Jews will have lifelong connections to their identity, and all Montrealers will have stronger ties to our city’s Jewish life.”

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.

We thank you for your ongoing support.

Happy reading!
