The Rosenbach holds a significant collection of portraits of the Gratz family, early Jewish residents of Philadelphia, known for their contributions to the city’s charitable institutions. Rebecca Gratz, who is depicted in two of the Rosenbach’s portraits, helped found the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society among others.  Almost all the Gratz family portraits currently require conservation. With only enough funding to cover half the conservation work, The Rosenbach recently launched its campaign to raise funds for the remaining Gratz family portraits. Join us for this program to welcome back the recently conserved portraits, learn about the conservation effort from Curator and Director of Collections, Judith Guston, and find out how you can help preserve these portraits for years to come.  

After the formal program, participants will be treated to a tour of the Gratz portraits currently on display and a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception in The Rosenbach Garden. 

This program is sponsored in part by the Female Hebrew Benevolent Society
