Items at the Jewish Museum and Cultural Center’s Second Annual Silent Auction include antiques and art objects, gift cards for restaurants, services, merchandise, and leisure activities, as well as unique gift baskets. Other attractions at the event include an Italian Buffet and dessert table.

Proceeds from this event will help sustain the museum, housed in the historic Chevra T’hillim synagogue, which presents innovative exhibits and programs.

The Jewish Museum and Cultural Center opened its doors to the public in March, 2008.

The building is a rare surviving example of Eastern European Jewish Orthodoxy located at the main entrance to the City of Portsmouth. It is recognized by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and is on the Virginia Historic Register.

To preserve Hampton Roads Jewish history, the Jewish Museum and Cultural Center offers programs and exhibits to document and tell the stories of the immigrants who came to the United States, in the mid-1800s through the 1930s, honoring those who contributed to the growth and establishment of Tidewater.

Tickets, which include the all you can eat buffet and a complimentary alcoholic beverage, may be purchased in advance for $25 by calling the museum at 757-391-9266, or at the door for $36. Visit
