Oregon Jewish Museum reopens


NEW YORK (JTA) — The Oregon Jewish Museum in Portland opened in a new location.

The 6,400-square-foot building that opened Sunday offers more storage space for archives and artifacts, and allows more exhibits to be held at the same time, the local Jewish Review reported.

The building, converted from its original use in the film industry, features screening rooms and better access for the disabled, among other facilities.

The premiere exhibition at the new space is called "The Shape of Time: accumulations of place and memory." Five photographers contributed to the exhibit, which touches on issues of collective identity through the lens of the local community.
