Women's Philanthropy invites you to join us for a very special day trip on June 27 to The Jewish Museum in New York City for a private tour of The Sassoons.
Includes luxury round-trip bus transportation, Mediterranean-inspired kosher lunch at Effy's Café, and private tour guide!
Limited to 40 people! RSVP by Friday, May 19.
The Sassoons exhibit reveals the fascinating story of a remarkable Jewish family, following four generations from Iraq to India, China, and England through a rich selection of works collected by family members over time.
The exhibition highlights the Sassoon family’s pioneering role in trade, art collecting, architectural patronage, and civic engagement from the early 19th century through World War II. There are more than 120 works—paintings, decorative arts, illuminated manuscripts, and Judaica—amassed by family members and borrowed from numerous private and public collections.
Highlights include lavishly decorated Hebrew manuscripts from as early as the 12th century; Chinese art and ivory carvings; rare Jewish ceremonial art; Western masterpieces including paintings by Thomas Gainsborough, and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, and magnificent portraits by John Singer Sargent of various Sassoon family members. The Sassoons explores such themes as discrimination, diaspora, colonialism, global trade, and war that not only shaped the history of the family but continue to define our world today.
$130 per person | Roundtrip transportation to NYC, family-style lunch at Effy’s Café serving certified kosher Mediterranean cuisine, museum ticket, and private tour.
