Friends of The Magnes

MAKE A GIFT TO THE MAGNES and be a part of its legacy and its future. 

For more than half a century, the Magnes has provided access to unique resources that have allowed each generation to find its own story in the rich texts, vibrant images, and unique sounds of Jewish culture.
