Tanenbaum kicked off our 30th Anniversary year with a spectacular gathering at the Rubin Museum of Art on February 28th. Art enthusiasts joined distinguished guests and renowned artists for Divinely Inspired: Celebrating our Differences through Art. The auction featured work by artists of diverse cultures and faiths, who contributed their art to support and uplift Tanenbaum’s mission to promote justice and build respect for religious difference.
