Attack at the Jewish Museum of Belgium

We are extremely shocked and saddened to learn of the attack at the Jewish Museum of Belgium. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and the people who work and volunteer at the museum.

Abigail Morris, Chief Executive of the Jewish Museum London, said, “In the course of our work many of us here in London have formed strong friendships with our colleagues in Belgium. This is not just a vile assault on a Jewish museum, but a murderous attack on our friends – both Jewish and non-Jewish who work there, as well as those who visit.”

“We continually review our security arrangements at the Jewish Museum London and liaise with the British police and the Community Security Trust to ensure that the measures in place remain appropriate. On their advice we will remain open as normal.”

We also support the Association of European Jewish Museums in their statement, as can be seen here.
