Kedem Auction House was established in 2008 by two market savvy professionals, Meron Eren and Avishay Galer. As the company’s co-founders and co-managers, both partners have been involved in the purchase and sale of antique Jewish books and manuscripts, and ancient Jewish artifacts for several years. Combining their experience and expertise, Avishay specializes in religious books (“Sifrei Kodesh”) and rabbinical manuscripts, while Meron focuses on items related to Jewish and Israeli history and culture.
Kedem derives its name from the Hebrew and is a direct reference to the past, however, it also translates to ‘progress’ and a glimpse towards the future. It is the joining together of these two worlds that best defines Kedem’s unique offering. To date, Kedem is the only auction house to hold public auctions devoted exclusively to Eretz Israel collectibles, Jewish history in Israel and the Diaspora, Zionism, and Jewish and Israeli culture.
Kedem employs a team of experienced professionals passionate about their craft. The company is headquartered in Jerusalem with a sales office in North America.
