The Tale End of the Year

Posted on August 3rd, 2018 by

Museum Matters, August 2018

I write to you smack in the middle between the end of our fiscal year (June 30) and the end of the Hebrew calendar year (September 8). This is typically a time of introspection – what have we accomplished? who have we touched? who has enabled our success? what work remains unfinished?

It is fitting that this is also the time of year when we publish our annual report to the community.  Members – your copy should arrive in your mailbox shortly.* Each year we set a theme for the report; this year’s theme is “storytelling,” a fundamental part of JMM’s identity.

Some of these stories should be very familiar to you – they are about YOU, as visitors, members, donors and volunteers. But my best guess is that if you read the report cover-to-cover you will find at least one or two stories that will surprise you.

That’s why I want to encourage you to not only read the report but pass it on to a friend. If you don’t want to part with your physical copy (it really is beautiful!), you can direct your friends to our website.

Have a great finish to your summer.
