Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People
"A story thousands of years old — forever new.” (Abba Kovne)
Beit Hatfutsot: The Museum of the Jewish People presents the 4,000-year-old story of the Jewish people — past, present and future. Through a remarkable combination of images, exhibits, and models, as well as a unique database integrating family names, genealogy, Jewish music, films and photographs, the Museum plays an integral role in strengthening Jewish identity and perpetuating Jewish heritage worldwide.
The permanent exhibition is divided into six sections, each representing a specific facet of Jewish life: Family, Community, Faith, Culture, Living Among the Nations and Return to Zion. Together these values enabled Jews scattered around the world to maintain their unique traditions and heritage.
The spacious ground floor lobby is home to the Center for Jewish Arts and Culture. Temporary exhibitions – with displays of various subjects and disciplines, such as Jewish communities, photography and Jewish and Israeli art – are located here.
