The Jewish Museum’s 26th Annual Most Amazing New York Art & Design Tour Ever, held on May 22, 2019, attracted over 200 attendees. Guests enjoyed breakfast and the Museum’s current exhibition, Leonard Cohen: A Crack in Everything. This was followed by self-guided tours of some of New York’s most spectacular private Upper West Side residences. Jane Wilf and Judith Greenblatt were the co-chairs of the event, which raised a record $360,000 to benefit the Jewish Museum.
