Dear Friends of the Maine Jewish Museum,

The Maine Jewish Museum Hall of Fame 2020 Induction Ceremony “Presented by Dorothy Suzi Osher in Memory of Alfred Osher “ will finally occur on September 19, 2021, at 3:00 pm in a garden reception and ceremony at our newly renovated and reopened Museum, just a year after originally scheduled.

The event is planned to occur both in person and via Zoom. Please click register below button to make a reservation for either.

We are taking the health and safety of all attendees very seriously and will require masks be worn inside the Museum for the ceremony as well as socially distancing inside. At this point we are expecting up to 75 in person attendees so there will be more than enough room for all attendees to spread out within their own pods. Furthermore, unvaccinated attendees will not be permitted in the building and asked to attend via zoom. Additionally, our newly renovated Museum has state of the art air conditioning/circulation pumps providing for a constant fresh air flow.

Honored this year are:

  • David Astor* — Portland
  • Rabbi Tuvia Ben Shmuel Yosef (Donald Gellers)* – Eastport
  • Norman Godfrey* – Portland
  • Jerry and Susan* Goldberg— Portland
  • Abraham and Fannie Levey*—Portland
  • George I Lewis* – Portland
  • Leonard and Merle Nelson– Cumberland Foreside
  • The Unobskey Family* – Calais(including Joseph and Sarah and sons William, Arthur and Charles)

* of blessed memory
