what a wonderful new space has been found by the Oregno Jjewish Museum, now located at 1953 NW Kearny. not only can more of the collection be displayed, traveling shows have arrived, the archives are bigger, there is an art deco film theatre and they share space with the Oregon Holocaust Resource Center. Fantastic Resource !!!!
