Museum of the Jewish Diaspora (Beit Hatfutsot)
Museum of Jewish Diaspora © Sodabottle
The museum conveys the Jewish people's story, beginning with their expulsion from Israel at Roman hands, and leading to their return. Multi-storey displays and exhibitions show a diverse range of Jewish communities, and the common cultural and religious links that have bound them. Visitors can engage with murals, reconstructions, dioramas, audio-visual displays, documentary films and interactive multimedia, and the Jewish Music Centre has thousands of recordings of Jewish music. Visitors will find traditional fare, music of communities that didn't survive the Holocaust, as well as works by Jewish composers.
