Prince staying as museum patron

The Prince of Wales has agreed to renew his position as patron of the Jewish Museum in Camden. He has been patron since 2008 and officially reopened the museum in 2010 after its substantial redevelopment.

He said then: “It is a wonderful way of discovering just what an enormous contribution the Jewish community has made to this country right back to 1066. The fact that the contribution is still made in such a remarkable, effective and constructive way is something that deserves enormous celebration as well as immense gratitude.”

The museum houses one of the world’s finest collections of Judaica, and it has been awarded designated status in recognition of the importance of its collections as part of the national heritage.
