Fondation Pro mahJ
The Fondation Pro-mahJ contributes to the development of the collections of the Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaisme in Paris.
The Fondation pour le musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme (Pro mahJ), in Paris, was created in 2003 on the initiative of Claire Maratier, daughter of painter Michel Kikoïne (1892-1968), to promote the work of artists from the École de Paris and mobilize its resources in support of the mahJ. As an essential supporter of the enrichment of the mahJ's collections and the promotion of its heritage and activities, the foundation is committed to supporting contemporary artists whose work is rooted in the École de Paris and resonates with the mahJ's collections.
Your support will help preserve one of the finest collections of works of art and objects illustrating the heritage of Jewish culture in Europe and around the Mediterranean, from Antiquity to the present day, preserved and hosted by the musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme (mahJ), as well as strengthening the museum's activities, particularly its educational initiatives. The mahJ is France's largest museum devoted to Jewish art and culture, and a place of reference for education, promoting cultural diversity and combating prejudice and discrimination, for people from all walks of life.
The mahJ is also developing an active policy of research into Jewish history and archeologia, through conferences, symposia and meetings. It actively campaigns for better dissemination of Jewish history and heritage and for it to be taken into account in public policy.
