Donated by: Ilana Ben Ari and Ilana Goor

You and five guests will enjoy a VIP tour of the museum and private residence of artist Ilana Goor in Israel!

The tour will be led by one of Ilana Goor's closest friends Ilana Ben Ari, a social entrepreneur and a source of inspiration for Goor's work. 

The artist Ilana Goor travels worldwide most of the time, so it is hard to know when she will be in the museum, but if she is in the museum during the VIP visit, she will take the time to meet with the donor for a private meeting in her private quarters. If Goor is not in the museum during the visit, Ilana Ben Ari will take the donor to Goor's private quarters for refreshments and answer any question they may have about the artist and her life. Goor is a personal friend of politicians, business executives and celebrities in the USA and Israel, and her house is the prime location for VIP visits of people such as Obama, Robert De Niro, and more.

The Museum building stands on a hill in Old Jaffa and constitutes an architectural pearl and a work of art in itself with its unique view of the Mediterranean Sea. The Museum experience allows the visitors to depart on a fascinating journey which starts in the 18th century. The building was constructed in 1742, as the first Jewish home outside of the Jaffa walls, by Yaakov Zonana, who served as the head of “Committee of Officers in Kushta” in Constantinople. The original function of the building was as an inn for pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem. Apart from it being a half-way stop for the pilgrims, it also served as a shelter protecting them from robbers, who roamed the walls of Old Jaffa.

Ilana Goor is an individualistic, autodidactic, intuitive and multifaceted artist. As an artist who knows no boundaries and whose art transcends any conventions, her creations are a blend of vitality and obsession, functional simplicity alongside expressive complexity bordering on surrealism. Her sources of inspiration are neither time nor place-dependent. They create a personal statement, a journey replete with meaning and they succeed in touching and moving people the world over.

She never studied art or design in any formal setting. She developed her artistic techniques on her own from an early age, when she used various parts to create small statues. Considered to be an international multidisciplinary artist her works encompass sculptures, furniture, Judaica, lighting fixtures, jewelry and fashion items which are displayed in well-known galleries worldwide and are distinguished by their powerful, dominant presence.
