JMABC Response to COVID-19

Dear Friends,

The rapidly evolving COVID-19 health crisis is causing all of us to adjust our plans on a day-by-day basis, and the JMABC is no exception.

In the interest of promoting social distancing and the best health of our volunteers, community and participants, the JMABC has elected to cancel all public programs planned for March and April, including walking tours and oral history workshops.

JMABC staff will be working from home for at least the next two weeks and all scheduled committee meetings will be held via telephone.

Though we are being advised to practice social distancing, this is also a time to come together as a community – if not in person – to provide support to those most vulnerable. If you are able to, we hope that you will consider making a donation to our friends at Jewish Family Services, supporting them in providing aid to those most in need. You can do so by clicking their logo below:

We wish you and your families all the best in these unpredictable times and hope that like us, you are following the advice of public health officials. We look forward to exploring our regional community history with you once again once this public health crisis is behind us. In the meantime, you can take your mind off current affairs by browsing our collection of online exhibits and our podcast, The Kitchen Stories.


The Board and staff of the JMABC
