WHERE TO FIND US

About us

The IJM relies on the joint work of volunteers, management committee and honorary Patrons.

In 1984, Asher Benson, Harold Muschatt, L. Shepps, Ramon Eppel, Juliet Eppel, Karen Eppel, Jacqueline Wine, Dr. J. Tolkin and others organised a successful antique fair of Jewish artefacts and memorabilia in Dublin. When the question arose of what to do with the exhibits once the fair closed, Raphael Siev proposed turning the empty Walworth Road Synagogue into the Irish Jewish Museum.  The interior of the synagogue was restored to its original state, and a home was found where the unique historical and cultural heritage of Ireland’s Jewish community could be celebrated with pride. Without the single-minded dedication of the Siev family, and of Raphael Siev who served as curator until his death in 2009, the Irish Jewish Museum could never have made the transition from aspiration to reality.
