The Jewish Museum of Greece has been a source of inspiration and fulfillment for me, ever since I started working here, following in the excellent footsteps of those before me.

The Museum’s invaluable collection bears witness to a unique Jewish heritage, which flourished in this corner of the world for well over 23 centuries, and was almost wiped out during the tragic years of the Shoah.

The Board of Directors, our able staff and volunteers who work for the success of this small but important institution, consider it our mission to safeguard this tradition and help the Museum realise its full potential.

Our work has only just begun. We are called upon to continue in our task of documenting the past, exploring the present and maintaining the future of the Jewish History and Tradition in Greece. Our goal is to maintain the interest of our members and visitors, through high-quality programmes and events.

I would like to thank you for your interest in the Jewish Museum of Greece, and most importantly, I would like to invite you to come and visit us.

Your presence and support are necessary, if we are to continue with our mission. In our turn, we will do our best to make your visit to the Museum a memorable experience.

Hoping to see you soon at the museum,

Zanet I. Battinou
Director J.M.G.
