An inspiring look at world Jewry through the millennia.
A history of Jews throughout the world
Located on the campus of Tel Aviv University, this museum was established in 1978 to try to capture the long and convoluted story of a people and a culture from the time of the Jews' expulsion from the land of Israel more than 2,500 years ago until the present day. Its creator, Dr. Nahum Goldman, aimed to create a thread that would pass beyond geographical boundaries that would unify and dignify Jewish religion and culture during the long generations of exile. In fact, the museum has a permanent multimedia exhibition on the history of the Jewish people called "A history of thousands of years - always new." Another excellent means of getting to the heart of Jewish - and Israeli - identity.
