It’s a question charged with meaning, and one we all ask ourselves in life. In 1944, when Frieda Schiff Warburg donated the Warburg family home to the Jewish Museum, she made an extraordinary gift to the Jewish community, as well as to the cultural landscape of New York City. With her generous bequest, she created a legacy that remains present and tangible today.
Over the years, many more individuals have strengthened the Jewish Museum with their own bequests, large and small, and all greatly appreciated. Planned gifts, such as these, help ensure that the Museum will continue to be one of the world’s preeminent centers of art and Jewish culture. We hope that you consider creating a lasting legacy of your own by including the Jewish Museum in your estate plans.
The Jewish Museum’s esteemed Warburg Society honors those individuals who have created a lasting legacy by including the Jewish Museum in their estate plans. Members of The Warburg Society enjoy benefits including:
For more information on planned gifts and The Warburg Society, please contact Jonah Nigh, Director of Major Gifts, at 212.423.3236 or email@example.com.
A gift through your will is a simple, straightforward way to make a meaningful contribution to the next generation. A gift made in your will entitles your estate to a charitable tax deduction.
Individuals can make the following kinds of bequests to the Jewish Museum:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Jewish Museum in New York, New York, the sum of $____ (or state percentage of estate or a description of the specific asset) for the benefit of the Jewish Museum and its general purposes.”
You may name the Jewish Museum as a beneficiary of all or part of a new or existing life insurance policy or retirement assets. These gifts often result in significant savings of income and estate taxes.
You may choose to donate art, real estate, or other assets to the Museum while retaining lifetime use and receiving an immediate income tax deduction.
Please check back for upcoming trips in 2017. For more information, please contact the Jewish Museum Travel Office at Travels@thejm.org.

In Southern France, Marc Chagall was inspired by the lush landscape, sunlight, and bright tones so vividly reflected in his work: “There, in the south, for the first time in my life, I saw that rich greenness—the like of which I had never seen in my own country.” This specially designed trip to Paris and Southern France followed Chagall’s footsteps, accompanied by Susan Tumarkin Goodman, curator of the Jewish Museum’s Chagall: Love, War, and Exile exhibition.

Legend has it that the Jewish presence in Argentina dates back to the 16th-century, when a number of Portuguese conversos, seeking refuge from the Inquisition, settled there. These first Jews practiced in secret and soon became assimilated into Argentine society. By the late 19th-century, they were joined by boatloads of Russian Jewish immigrants — the vanguard of the Jewish gauchos. Today, the 200,000 Jews of Argentina comprise the largest Jewish community in Latin America (one of the largest in the world).
