About the event

On June 10, 2021, the public was invited to celebrate Ron Rubin, a remarkable lifelong Philadelphian who loved his city, the Jewish community, this Museum, and was beloved in return. Ron would have turned 90 this May.

Ron was a longtime Trustee of, and critical force behind the creation of the new National Museum of American Jewish History which opened in 2010 on Historic Independence Mall in Philadelphia, PA.

In this tribute, distinguished Philadelphians, longtime friends, business partners, and family, speak to Ron’s remarkable contributions to the city he helped to transform, and the importance of relationships.

All are welcome to upload a short tribute video, photographs, and kind words for the family. Please drag and drop your file(s) into the box below, or click “select files from your computer” to upload them.
