Public Auctions

Kedem's specialties include four main areas:

2. Items related to Jewish and Israeli history and culture
3. Judaica and Israeliana objects, numismatics and medallions
4. Jewish and Israeli art
Articles from these fields are offered in three types of auctions: catalogue auctions, online-only auctions, and our bi-annual Rare and Important Items auctions. We accept a wide range of material on consignment – from single items to complete collections – for evaluation and future sale.
