Patron ProgramShare

Patron members comprise an exceptional group of individuals dedicated to supporting our mission to interpret and preserve the artistic and cultural heritage of the Jewish people.
Jennifer Roth, Sotheby's Senior Vice President of Fine Arts with Patrons Michael Nachman and Ruth Horowitz.

Annual giving at the Patron level provides critical funding for innovative exhibitions and education projects. These gifts enable The Jewish Museum to enhance its standing as a leading cultural institution, both locally and nationally. In appreciation of their generous commitments, Patrons enjoy an array of benefits, including invitations to exclusive events, such as Art Culture & Conversation, Curator's Choice, and a private preview at the annual Sotheby's Judaica sale.

A generous array of additional benefits accompanies each level of Patron membership. Patron Membership is tax deductible except for $80 which represents the estimated value of the offered goods and services you will receive for your contribution.
