THE MANAGEMENT TEAM
The World’s Jewish Museum is being led by Gail Asper, O.C., O.M., LL.D., Moses (Moe) Levy, Directors and volunteers of the World’s Museum of Jewish History and Culture (Private) LTD (CC), a Public Benefit Company established in Israel, architect Frank Gehry and museum planning firm Ralph Appelbaum Associates. Both Asper and Levy, of The Asper Foundation, were instrumental in creating and delivering Canada’s fifth national museum and the first one to be located outside of Ottawa, the $351 million Cdn. Canadian Museum for Human Rights (seen to the right). Opened in 2014, it has received over 30 awards and is touted by various tourist magazines as the fifth ‘coolest’ place on the planet and one of the top ten places to visit in the world.
Zvika Hauser, previous Cabinet Secretary to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Jonathan Shiff, legal counsel in Israel form the team, with additional program support in Los Angeles, California and Winnipeg, Manitoba. The team will be expanded as needed.
