The oldest and largest museum in Tennessee is apologizing over a lavish dinner that would have celebrated the cuisines of Palestine and raised money for a Palestinian charity for children.

“This menu will be a celebration of the seasonal produce, fowl, and seafood of late fall/early winter, and several dishes will incorporate elements of the cuisines of Palestine,” the museum had announced last week on its social media platforms. “We’ll be donating a percentage of the profit from this event to @thepcrf which is an organization that provides aid to Palestinian children currently experiencing a major humanitarian crisis.”

KWAM News Radio 990 AM first reported that the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art was hosting the fundraising dinner. That report caused outrage among donors and supporters of the famed museum.

“What about the Israel children beheaded, women raped and families killed,” asked on KWAM listener.

“For the record, 75% of Palestinians approved of the actions of Hamas on Oct 7th,” another listener wrote. “I guess Brooks would have done a fundraiser for Nazi kids in 1940 too.”

The museum responded to the backlash by apologizing to supporters and terminating its contract with the catering vendor, the Commercial Appeal reported.

“The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art deeply apologizes for this incident, as it violated museum policy,” read an email to supporters obtained by the newspaper.

Museum leadership said they were conducting an internal review to better understand how the breach in protocol happened.

“The Memphis Brooks Museum of Art understands the profound immorality of the brutal atrocities committed by Hamas on Oct. 7. We are heartbroken for the Israeli and Palestinian civilians suffering in the ensuing violence as Israel seeks to defend its people as the Jewish nation. We hope for a peaceful solution,” the email read.

The newspaper identified “Loaf” as the vendor and noted the caterer “sought to convert the dinner into a fundraiser without the knowledge of approval of museum leadership.”

“Without the knowledge or approval of museum leadership, Loaf sought to frame the December tasting dinner as a fundraiser, which is against museum policy; our on-site fundraising exclusively supports the museum,” Brooks executive director Zoe Kahr told the Commercial Appeal.
