About the Friends of the Museum
The Friends of the Oslo Jewish Museum is established to actively support and create interest in the museum’s activities, exhibitions, artifact collection, cultural events, and information.
The organization is working to get members and funding to support Oslo Jewish Museum financially and to help the museum with practical matters in the implementation of the museum’s various events.
The Friends of the Museum was established in the fall of 2005 and has about 600 members today.
The organization is an independent financial entity which manages its own means in accordance with its bylaws. Since its founding it has given the museum financial contributions and gifts of considerable value. The gifts are, amongst others, the wrought iron gate and the restoration of the Torah cabinet.
Friends of the Museum publishes a newsletter twice a year, informing the members about the museum’s activities and events. In 2010 the Jewish Film Club was established as the Friends’ own cultural arm. Its aim is to show films related to the Jewish world.
The Annual Meeting is the highest organ of the Friends and is usually held by the end of June. Members who have paid their dues can vote.
