Chaverim/Circle of Friends Members choose to support the Guild by donation. Our Chaverim/Circle of Friends Memberships are open to collectors, educators and enthusiasts of Jewish art and Judaica.

Our Legacy Member pages are meant to document and preserve information about the artists and artisans, now no longer with us, who created contemporary Jewish art and Judaica in the latter part of the 20th century and early part of the 21st century. This record will also provide an historical roadmap to learning about those artists and artisans whose contributions to Jewish art and culture are now part of the continuum of our artistic story.

Personal Profile Pages are for our General Members only and are not available at the Chaverim/Circle of Friends level.
