Making the Museum: An Obligation to Remember


Making the Museum explores the new Toronto Holocaust Museum’s history, development, curatorial approach, and contemporary relevance. Our community of Holocaust survivors was dedicated to education for decades, which is carried forward in the new Museum in dynamic and engaging ways. The Museum preserves their voices and legacy for a new generation of visitors.



The Toronto Holocaust Museum is a space for education and dialogue about this vital history and its ongoing relevance. The Museum serves as a powerful and growing force against antisemitism, bigotry, and hatred in all its forms. Our state-of-the-art facility is the premier destination for Holocaust education in the city showcasing cutting edge technology, including interactive Holocaust survivor testimony stations at the core of each exhibit space and augmented reality tablet tours. The Museum deepens the public’s knowledge and understanding while, inspiring visitors to think critically about the tragedies of the Holocaust and to make connections between the Holocaust, world events, and contemporary Canadian life.

This exhibit runs from November 3rd through 29th.

The Gallery at the J is seeking artists and partner organizations to participate in our 2024 season! We are attracted to artwork that tells a story. We want our viewers to experience a journey - yours and theirs. 

Artists and organizations are asked to examine universal values through a Jewish lens. Each month has been assigned a theme/subject which represent a selection of our core principles. Please carefully review the criteria before submitting. (We acknowledge the additional themes associated with months of the year such as Asian Heritage Month and Black History Month. If there are themes and subjects you are not seeing that you feel we should include, please write to for future consideration)

Restorative Creativity

Shabbat is a great time to slow down and get closer to the world around you, to engage your senses and your sense of wonder by observing and processing our experiences through mark- and art-making. Using the Jewish Studio Process, we’ll gather in textual inquiry and art-making, ground ourselves with restorative creativity, let our minds wander with materials in hand, and nourish ourselves with deep play.


STEPS Public Art – Transforming our Neighbourhoods and Community

Co-presented by MNjcc Adult Daytime Culture and Education and The Wagner-Green Centre for Access & Inclusion

STEPS Public Art transforms our urban spaces, fostering inclusive communities through vibrant, engaging and accessible public art projects. Learn about the importance of public art, how it supports local artists, increases public space accessibility, and transforms neighbourhoods through murals, installations, and special projects like the Accessible Art and Placemaking Project. For those attending in person, we will host an accessibility needs discussion over refreshments. This multi-access program - open and accessible to all - is presented as part of Jewish Disability Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusion Month (JDAIM).
