Big Give is over, but you can still support your favorite programs.
Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life

Your generosity today will help the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life thrive as a treasured resource that advances research and scholarship and serves as a world-class repository for Jewish cultural memories.

The only Jewish collection integrated into a major research university, the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life was established in 2010 following the transfer of the Judah L. Magnes Museum to UC Berkeley. Its remarkably diverse archive, library, and museum holdings include art, objects, texts, music, and historical documents about the Jews in the global diaspora and the American West as well as in Israel. It is the third largest Jewish collection in North America, and it continues to grow, providing highly innovative and accessible resources to students, faculty, other researchers, and the general public.

Your generosity makes growth, appropriate interpretation, and presentation possible. It also affords you exclusive privileges such as advance notice of events and recognition in the Magnes newsletter and on its website.
