The museum of the Jewish people, Tel Aviv, District, Israel
Beit Hatfutsot conveys to the world the fascinating narrative of the Jewish people and the essence of their culture, faith, purpose while presenting the contribution of world Jewry to humanity.
Beit Hatfutsot, the Museum of the Jewish People, is more than a museum. This unique global institution tells the ongoing and extraordinary story of the Jewish people.
Beit Hatfutsot connects Jewish people to their roots and strengthens their personal and collective Jewish identity.
Beit Hatfutsot opened in 1978 thanks to the vision of Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress 1954-1977. In 2005, the Israeli Knesset passed the Beit Hatfutsot Law that defines Beit Hatfutsot as “the National Center for Jewish communities in Israel and around the world”.
