Mission, Vision, Values


We celebrate and honor the contributions of Maine’s Jewish community members, past and present. Through art exhibitions, historical displays, and diverse programming, we build on the Maine Jewish immigrant experience to foster appreciation and understanding among people of all backgrounds.



We connect people to the Maine Jewish experience and Jewish Mainers to their roots. Our Jewish core is a springboard for broader outreach, and our shared affinity with other historically and systemically underserved communities inspires our work.



  • We are passionate about illuminating the vibrancy and complexity of Maine’s evolving Jewish community for a state, national, and global audience
  • We celebrate the five C’s: Culture, Community, Curiosity, Connection, Collaboration
  • We promote tikkun olam (world healing)
  • We are committed to drawing lessons from the Maine Jewish experience to create a kinder, more compassionate, and equitable society
