Our Visitor Experience Officer volunteers play a key role in inspiring and engaging our CHAGALL audiences by facilitating access to the exhibition, ensuring the integrity of the objects on display and connecting with our audiences to foster curiosity.
In Hebrew, natan means ‘he gave.’ There’s something beautiful about this word in both original script and transliteration, as it can be read forward and backward – the idea being that when we offer something of ourselves it’s as much about giving as receiving.
The Jewish Museum of Australia is fortunate to receive the gift of time, insight and commitment from over 100 volunteers across all aspects of our activity. From the earliest days at Toorak shule this group has sustained us – greeting and engaging with visitors, explaining the intricacies of Jewish culture, leading groups through our varied and fascinating exhibitions, and taking groups across to our local synagogue. Volunteers also work in other parts of the Museum, assisting with school groups, adult education, and administration roles.
Put simply, it would be impossible for the Museum to offer everything it does without the help of our amazing volunteers.
