About Oregon Jewish Museum, Portland

This is a visual history museum, the largest of its kind in Oregon dedicated to the Jewish people. It was established in the 1989 by Portland’s Rabbi Joshua Stampfer. Since then it has acquired and compiled family papers, photographs, organizational records, archival materials, and other artefacts, which now form the core of the Museum's archives. Some of these date back to the mid-nineteenth century. This slow but steady growth has eventually led to the creation of a place for hosting cultural programmes and events, organizing temporary exhibitions, providing space for travelling exhibitions, and educating communities about Jewish identity and culture.

Oregon Jewish Museum, Portland Reviews

  • This museum is expanding its offerings. The permanent exhibit gives a very poignant view of the history of Nazi effect on Jews and on the history if a Jewish community in Portland. But they also bring in interesting art exhibits, e.g., right now they have 3 early Rothko paintings among other works. And historic film events. The museum is small, so exhibits are too. And they have added a small cafe.

  • The new location is great. Much better than the former Kearney street location. Visited for a film and discussion. Went to the opening exhibit and thoroughly enjoyed that visit. Have not yet eaten in the cafe. They could use a second bathroom as the wait can be long. Friendly staff. Very nice permanent exhibits and a nice space for rotating shows. The gift shop is well curated. Try it, you'll like it.

  • Wide variety of exhibits related to Oregon Jews. There was an art exhibit with paintings from Mark Rothko. The intolerance exhibit was the best. Eat lunch at Lefty's next door. The only thing that was missing was more explanation what the ceremonial objects are used for.

  • Personally, this is such an exciting merger. When I was on the OHRC board for several years I pushed for our Holocaust Education to have a permanent physical location, not just a website. We finally managed to get space at the old museum location. But this? Jewish History and Holocaust Education blended together in a beautiful, awe-inspiring setting? Thank you to all who made this happen. Mazel tov.

  • Had lunch at Lefty's Cafe. Delicious and affordable.
