JoM Contributors

Our commissioned contributors are working for the JoM as writers, editors, interviewers and researchers, creating online exhibitions and articles working with JoM's curator, to juxtapose image and text in ways that can offer new perspectives and help to communicate the complexities and diverse expression of what it is to be Jewish – with a particular and present focus on Jews in New Zealand. Over time, the JoM will explore and offer invitations to Jewish museums, Jewish community groups and seek collections from across the globe.  Exhibitions, biographies and articles are donated, collected and created for the JoM so as to bring insight and interpretation to the faith, historical fact and key figures of Jewish life in New Zealand. References such our glossaries and calendar are provided here as learning resources, and as useful references for the museum visitor. In the future we hope to grow our contributors and contributions significantly with your help – please see our Contributions page for more details on how to contribute to JoM.

Contributing editors, writers, interviewers and researchers include: our Senior Honorary Editor for JoM, Leonard Bell, Paul Spoonley, Sarah Sheiff, Cheryl Pearl Sucher, Rabbi Samuel Altschul, Rabbi Mendel Goldstein, Miriam Bell, Claire Bruell, Michael Clements, David Cohen, Deb Schwarz, Naomi Johnson, Tanya Eccleston, Ruth Greenaway, Oliver Hoffmann, Jill Leichter, Ilan Wittenberg, Stephen Robinson, Mike Regan, Paul Rose, Allan Smith, Carole Shepheard, Barbara Glasser and Linda Yang. Miriam Harris and Jonathan Besser have both contributed their time and artworks for the enjoyment of JoM visitors. Organisations such as the New Zealand Jewish Archives, World Upside Down, the Australian Jewish Archives, Shadows of Shoah, Digital NZ and a number of New Zealand's Jewish congregations have also been generous in their contributions to the JoM.

The Jewish Online Museum is governed by the Jewish Online Museum Charitable Trust, whose current members are  David J Ross (Chair and Founder of JoM), John Barnett, Denise Cohen, Stuart Rubin. Currently the JoM employs one full time staff member as its Project Manager and first curator for the museum, Keren Cook.
