Gross Family Collection, Tel Aviv, is one of the largest and most important private collections of Judaica of our times. It includes thousands of diverse items which present Jewish material culture in all countries of the Diaspora. Besides that, it is characterized by collector’s excellent taste and sincere love to Jewish culture.
William L. Gross is one of the oldest friends and supporters of the Center for Jewish Art. Also, he stands out in his willingness to share his items with the public, to lend them for numerous exhibitions all over the world and to permit publication of their photographs.
We are extremely grateful for the possibility to include photographs and descriptions of objects from the collection into the Bezalel Narkiss Index of Jewish Art. This separate division of the Index, “Gross Family Collection,” presents Gross’ magnificent endeavor in its entirety.
