The Maine Jewish Museum is located in a turn-of-the-century immigrant-era house of worship restored to its original condition.The building stands as a testament to the Jewish families of Maine who worked so hard to build this facility almost 100 years ago.
The museum showcases photographic and historic displays that highlight the contributions and accomplishments of Maine’s original Jewish immigrants and their families as well as contemporary art and rotating exhibits by Jewish artists with a Maine connection.
The mission of the Maine Jewish Museum is to honor the contributions and diversity of Maine’s Jewish immigrants in the context of the American experience. Through exhibits and programming, the Museum seeks to build bridges of appreciation and understanding with people of all backgrounds.
