Make a generous tax deductible donation to the Maine Jewish Museum


Welcome to the Maine Jewish Museum, located in Portland’s East End neighborhood. The museum is housed within the restored Etz Chaim Synagogue, a turn-of-the-century house of worship. The museum has been the venue for contemporary art exhibitions for the past six years. These exhibitions, which change every eight weeks, feature established, Jewish-connected, and Maine-connected artists. The museum also houses Jack Montgomery’s photo exhibit of Holocaust survivors who settled in Maine as well as a permanent exhibition of Maine Jewish History.

      Our brick walkway, consisting of 4,000 bricks, leads from the street through our peaceful garden to the entrance of the building. The Maine Jewish Museum invites you to honor or remember special people in your life by inscribing their name(s) on one or more commemorative bricks. Funds raised will help enable the Museum to complete the final phase of renovations and make improvements that will benefit the entire community.
