Musicians perform the works of German-Jewish composers at an event for LBI members.

By becoming a member of Leo Baeck Institute, you are helping to preserve the memory and achievements of a culture that produced some of the most significant achievements in science, the arts, business, and politics. Your support allows LBI to preserve and catalog its collections to secure them for future generations and make them available to scholars in diverse disciplines across the world through digitization. It is also essential to LBI programs that help the public engage with this important material.

As thanks for this crucial support, members receive a variety of benefits such as unique event invitations, discounts, and free publications. You may also consider making a fully tax deductible financial donation in any amount.
