King Charles has retained his patronage of Jewish Museum London.

Currently operating as a museum without walls as it looks for a new home, Jewish Museum London is one of 1,000 organisations King Charles has chosen to continue supporting.

Incoming chief executive Sally Angel said: “The museum tells the story of the Jewish community and its role in the life and society of the United Kingdom, past, present and future. It now has an extraordinary opportunity to connect its world-class collection with the power of story and use digital innovation to reach wider and more diverse audiences.

“The story of Jews in Britain speaks of freedom, persecution, resilience and belonging. My ambition is that the Museum will be a beacon of hope for all minorities living here and more than a small step against prejudice.”

Sue Shave, outgoing acting director, Jewish Museum London said: “I am immensely proud of our extraordinary achievements in becoming a Museum without Walls and increasing our reach around the UK telling key Jewish stories through our collections and programmes. The Museum is in good hands with an excellent team and great foundations for an exciting future.”

The Jewish Museum London currently has items on display at Tate, The National Holocaust Centre and Museum, JW3, The Hackney Museum, Manchester Jewish Museum as well as pop-up exhibitions at Swiss Cottage Library.

This summer it will launch an online platform to showcase 10,000 objects from the Museum’s Designated Collections.
