American Friends of the Israel Museum

American Friends of the Israel Museum Welcome to AFIM'S page! Please check for upcoming events. We invite you to join one of our membership levels.
The American Friends of the Israel Museum (AFIM) was founded in 1968 at the initiative of Teddy Kollek. AFIM is a non-profit organization that works with the Israel Museum Jerusalem to raise funds and acquire art either through purchase (with raised funds) or as gifts in the United States. AFIM membership groups have annual social events in New York, Los Angeles and Palm Beach and periodic events throughout the country. Members are invited to a series of collection visits, studio visits, lectures and trips throughout the year. We have an annual meeting in Jerusalem and travel opportunities worldwide.

Happy birthday to the Israel Museum! The country's national museum turns 50 this year -- middle age for most of us, but quite young in museum years.

Yesterday's 50th birthday party was filled with cupcakes, balloons and more than 12,000 people who came to celebrate with us.

At the opening ceremony, Museum Director James Snyder, together with former President Shimon Peres and Chairman of the Board Isaac Molho, unveiled the Jeff Koons sculpture "Sacred Heart," a special loan in honor of the Israel Museum’s 50th Anniversary from the collection of Steven and Alexandra Cohen of Greenwich, Connecticut.

"Sacred Heart" will greet visitors to the Museum through the end of the year.

Thanks for celebrating with us!
