The Jewish Museum of Greece mourns the loss of Zakhlin Simcha, a valued volunteer, who died on Sunday, 13 May 2018.

Zakhlin Simcha was a loyal volunteer at the JMG for over 30 years. She followed its journey from its different locations from the beginning to its current location. Her specialty was in the registering of library books and the compiling of a catalogue.

She was always helpful and willing to assist in anything that needed to be arranged or organised, while she was a “second mother” to all those who sought her advice.

The EMU honours her memory and sees in her valuable contribution a source of inspiration and strength for the continuation of its research and cultural work.

We would like to express the sincere sympathy of the board and staff of the Jewish Museum of Greece to her bereaved family.
