Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin

Ever since the museum was founded in 2001, the Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin have supported it with tireless dedication.

What our Members Achieve

The Friends’ membership fees and donations make exhibitions and new acquisitions possible and promote the museum’s diverse educational programming. The construction of the Glass Courtyard and the W. Michael Blumenthal Academy were likewise funded in part by the Friends of the Museum. Everyone can achieve more with the help of friends!

Varied Program for Members

Our society of Friends is also a forum for interaction and exchange. It engages interested and committed people in conversation, unites young and old, and offers members an attractive range of benefits and exclusive events: from free admission and curator-guided tours to theater and opera visits and cultural trips within Germany and abroad.

Companies can also join. Enjoy many additional discounts and offers corresponding to the extent of your contribution.

"The museum’s achievement of making the past visible and palpable for present and future generations is what motivated me to get involved as a member of the Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin." —Eyal Lazarovic


The Friends’ support of the Jewish Museum Berlin is not only financial. Our volunteers also devote their time and energy to the museum.

They not only support the Friends at various events, but also exercise their green thumbs in the Diaspora Garden at the W. Michael Blumenthal Academy. If you are interested in supporting us as a volunteer, we would be happy to provide you with additional information.

"For us, the Jewish Museum is a place to encounter people of different backgrounds and age groups. Supporting this work with the Friends is important to us! (And fun too.)" —Sybille Svoboda and Maxim Ehrlich
