The Hecht Museum Auditorium

The Reuben and Edith Hecht Museum for archaeology and art inaugurated a modern and elegant auditorium in 1998.
The auditorium hosts conferences and cultural events such as concerts, dance recitals, and plays in an intimate setting.

It is worth mentioning the auditorium's acoustic properties, which are designed to provide perfect sound
quality for either lectures or musical performances. This is achieved through the use of special acoustic
cupboards installed on the walls, which can be adjusted according to the requirements of the event.
The fully equipped 380 seat auditorium provides light, sound, and audiovisual systems.

A special feature of the auditorium is its pipe organ. The organ was built from parts of old organs dating
from 100-150 years ago. These organs originated in England, Italy, Germany, and Holland, and were used
in churches in Israel in the past. This is the largest pipe organ functioning in a non secular facility in Israel.

The organ was built in Israel by the organ builder Mr. Gideon Shamir.
