The Oregon Jewish Museum's mission is dedicated to the preservation, research and exhibition of art, archival materials and artifacts of the Jewish people. It is the repository for archival documents, artifacts and photographs concerning the history of the Jews in Oregon and endeavors to discover and collect all materials that may help to illuminate this history.


The Oregon Jewish Museum (OJM), the Pacific Northwest's only Jewish museum, was founded in 1989 to examine and preserve the rich cultural heritage of one of Oregon's earliest immigrant groups; to bring innovative traveling exhibitions and programs to the region; and to build a dynamic institution embracing identity and community.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
