A Jewish museum has received a grant of £231,000 while it searches for a new permanent home.

The Jewish Museum London was housed in a building in Albert Street in Camden until this summer.

The sale of its site was to help develop plans to create a new museum in a more prominent location.

Over the last few months, the museum has continued to share its collection online.

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has now announced it will award the museum £231,000 for its project ‘Jewish Museum London on the Move’.

The project will run from December 2023 to March 2025, and will allow the museum to re-start in-person workshops.

Schools workshops are anticipated to begin again next Spring, and Swiss Cottage Library Gallery will host a ‘Celebration of Jewish Life’ exhibition in March.

Museum acting director Sue Shave said: “This grant will have a huge impact on the development of our future plans and will increase our impact on a much wider audience engaging with heritage in the UK.

“Our visitor engagement from this broader presence will increase from 28,000 people a year coming to the Camden Museum to a potential audience of 155,000 people per year including schools and community groups, reaching people in different regions around the UK with physical and online collections for the first time.”
