The American Friends of Museums in Israel’s Fine Art Online Auction hosted by Artsy is now live and closes on May 25, 2021,
at 6pm:

The American Friends supports eight distinct, diverse museums in Israel ranging from the Tower of David Museum an archaeological wonder
illuminating Jerusalem’s 3000-year history, to Haifa Museum of Art, Northern Israel’s leading center
for contemporary art. Faced with social distancing and travel restrictions, our
partner museums continue to find new ways to educate and connect people across
the world. By providing online learning resources, exhibitions, tours, and
public programs, they offer us moments of inspiration and hope.
