Beth Hatefutsoth - Museum of the Jewish Diaspora
Beth Hatefutsoth, the Museum of the Jewish People, imparts the unique and ongoing story of the Jewish people, a people scattered among the nations, and commemmorates their special bond with the land of Israel.
The museum reveals thousands of years of a flourishing and multifaceted global culture, dramatically illustrating the unity underlying the diversity of the Jewish civilization. The story of the Jewish people is told through the Core Exhibition – now undergoing renewal – as well as through temporary exhibitions, educational activities, and rich digital databases covering Jewish genealogy, family names, communities, photography, film, and music.
Beit Hatefutsoth does not merely recount the history of the Jews; the museum is dedicated not only to the Jewish past but to the Jewish future. Beit Hatefutsoth aims to provide the young generation with the means to understand and embrace their identity; to strengthen the bonds between Jewish people worldwide; to nurture a sense of pride in Jewish heritage and Jewish achievements; and to enable people around the world to discover and appreciate the fascinating and unique history of the Jewish people.
Beit Hatfutsot is housed on the campus of Tel Aviv University on Klausner Street, in Ramat Aviv.
Entrance is through Matatia Gate 2.
Dining options are provided by the Aroma Cafe, certified kosher by the Chief Rabbinate, on the entrance floor.
