Gifts of Art or Judaica

The Jewish Museum is unable to accept every gift of this kind offered because of the enormous responsibility and cost of maintaining and safeguarding our collections. We can only accept those objects that fall within our collecting priorities and mission. If you are interested in leaving The Jewish Museum a work of art or Judaica, please contact the Planned Giving Department at or 212.423.3296, so that arrangements can be made to have the gift reviewed by a curator.
