Beth Hatefutsoth

Beth Hatefutsoth

Beth Hatefutsoth, the Nahum Goldmann Museum of the Jewish Diaspora, exists to convey the story of the Jewish people from the time of their expulsion from the Land of Israel 2,500 years ago to the present. It relates the unique story of the continuity of the Jewish people through exhibition, education and cultural endeavours, providing multiple avenues of personal historical identification. Our hope is that by sharing the unique story of Jewish endurance, new generations may find the key to their own. Many come and experience: young and old, religious and secular, Israelis and tourists, civilians and soldiers.

The idea to establish Beth Hatefutsoth was originally proposed in the late 50`s by Dr. Nahum Goldmann, the founder and President of the World Jewish Congress. The idea was to create a monument to the Jewish Diaspora, past and present. The final concept of the Museum was based on the proposal of the poet Abba Kovner to divide the Permanent Exhibit into six thematic parts. When it opened in May 1978, Beth Hatefutsoth was regarded by many museum experts as one of the most innovative museums in the world. It created a whole new concept of what a museum is and has influenced museum culture since. Today Beth Hatefutsoth has evolved into far more than a museum: it impacts and touches the lives of Jews not just in Israel but throughout the world. It is truly, in every sense of the word, the Museum of the Jewish People.
