Since 1988 the musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme has been able to enrich its collections thanks to generous donations of works by collectors and artists.

The musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme and the Fondation Pro mahJ express their gratitude all the donors who participated in the public subscription for the acquisition of 435 photographs by Helmar Lerski (1871-1956).
This public subscription raised 101.687€.
