Friends in Israel

Chairperson: Irith Rappaport

The Friends Circle of the Tel Aviv Museum of Art has been established as a framework for the active involvement of art lovers who are interested in maintaining close ties with the Museum.

Friends of the Museum in Israel are invited to enjoy the Museum and its activities as part of their daily lives and become part of the Museum's vibrating global community of art supporters.

In recent years, the Friends of the Museum’s contributions have enabled the Museum to put on flagship exhibitions such as “Modern Times: Masterpieces from the Philadelphia Museum of Art”, “Louise Bourgeois”, “Hiroshi Sugimoto”, “Vic Muniz” and others.

You can join the Friends Circle by choosing one of the tracks listed below, and enjoy a variety of attendant benefits.
