Join us for our new series of intimate gallery talks designed just for members. This talk will take a closer look at The Benguiat Collection, offering 300 examples of decorative and ceremonial art related to Jewish culture – and one of the formative groups of the Jewish Museum’s collection. Plus, explore a newly-restored Torah ark curtain from Istanbul.

Talks will be held before the galleries open to the public and space is limited.

Free for members with RSVP or call 212.432.3284.
