The Foundation for the Preservation of the Memory of Chilean Judaism (FPMJ) is a project from B’nai B’rith District 27, a non-profit organization which contributes to the protection, research and promotion of Chilean Judaism, its origin, insertion and its contribution to the Republic of Chile. The FPMJ was born in 2016 in order to rescue the history of the Jews in the country, the creation and development of their community institutions, the stories of their families and the contribution that Jewish people has made in the history of Chile.
To fulfill its mission it maintains the Jewish Archive, which supports research, study and cultural encounters. We aspire to become an informative reference of Chilean Judaism and contribute to the collective memory of Chile by spreading the cultural heritage of Judaism from the local context.
The Foundation is supported by donations, volunteer work, and specific project grants.
