As an inspired educator and native Jerusalemite, I love to bring the museum to life and connect people to our rich Jewish heritage
That is my mission statement, and I hope, God willing, to explore as many museums and sites as possible in the world, to inspire people to look at Jewish heritage and Jewish History with fresh eyes.
Experiential learning in a museum is edifying and enjoyable, and has proven beneficial in many different settings: Families, bat/bat-mitzvah, couples, individuals, communities, events, fundraisers, synagogue and sisterhoods, parent outings and teacher professional development sessions.
We aim to reach the soul of any Jew through the unique classroom of the museum.
Any tour that is listed here, is available privately, and customizable for schools’ curriculum.
Lectures, Shabbat programs, workshops and other deals are also listed below.
These tours are in the Met, unless listed otherwise. For a list of other museums, please see bottom of page.
- Price for MET group-admission to Met just went up $2 per person as of July 1. This will factor into tours from August onward.
- The Ancient Near Eastern galleries are undergoing gradual changes. Expect some exhibitions to be temporarily inaccessible in 2019-2020. This can make this tour challenging, and we roll with the punches. This will ultimately make things better!

* Students learning in a school in the five boroughs are exempt from admission, with 1 complementary ticket for every adult chaperon (or teacher) per 10 students. Schools in NJ or out of state who come to the Met are therefore given discount on the single tour rate.
An in-class workshop is recommended when preparing a group for visiting the Met. Both being acquainted with the guide, and having a better understanding of the material, will maximize the experience and learning in the museum.
