by Robin Pogrebin | Jan 12, 2017
A year after James S. Snyder announced his decision to step down as director, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem has chosen his successor: Eran Neuman, currently the director of the David Azrieli School of Architecture at Tel Aviv University, will begin the position on Feb. 19.

Mr. Snyder, who served for 20 years and becomes director emeritus, will continue in the newly created role of international president, developing the museum’s network of organizations, programming, collections and facilities.

Mr. Neuman is also the founder of the Azrieli Architectural Archive at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art and the co-founder of Open Source Architecture, an international research collaborative.

“Eran is someone who knows how to build institutional resources, create collaborative initiatives and bring new ideas to life,” Mr. Snyder said in a statement. “He is both an innovator and a scholar.”
