Loewy voted head of European Jewish museums group


(JTA) – Hanno Loewy, the director of the Jewish Museum in Hohenems, Austria, is the new president of the Association of European Jewish Museums.

Representatives from 45 Jewish museums located in countries across Europe — from Spain to Turkey — elected Loewy to the post at the museum association’s annual meeting this week in London.

Loewy succeeds Ricki Burman of the London Jewish Museum, which hosted this year’s meeting. Delegates discussed the future of Jewish museums, new approaches to educational work in the multicultural immigrant community and a number of joint projects.
