The Sydney Jewish Museum is a depository of stories, of courage and of heartbreak, and ultimately a centre for celebrating life. With National Volunteer Week fast approaching, we honour our volunteers and reflect on the responsibility that is incumbent on each and every one of us to ensure the Museum’s sustainability.

The Museum is reliant on the energy and contribution of its 220 volunteers. Coming from all ages and life experiences, they provide thousands of visitors with the information, direction and personal contact necessary to ensure a rewarding experience in viewing the exhibits.
Apart from direct interaction with visitors, volunteers play a pivotal role in every facet of the Museum, including Marketing, Curatorial, Office Administration, Accounts, Admissions, Reception, Education, and the Museum’s shop.
The contribution of these people enables thousands of school children to learn from our history each year; for countless Survivors to document their memories; and for thousands more adults to often meet a Jew for the first time. The volunteers make a visit to the Sydney Jewish Museum a very special, educational and memorable experience.
