The Museum of the Jewish People is recommended for students in grades 1-12 to explore family history, culture and the history of the Jewish people from around the world. The Museum is appropriate for all ages to visit, and the website is recommended for grades 5 and up.
For almost four decades, The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot has been amassing a unique and intriguing body of knowledge: the family trees of over five million individuals, hundreds of thousands of images and films, an abundance of music — both old and new, and archival research into the origins of Jewish family names and the histories of Jewish communities around the world — all the little pieces that, together, comprise the great mosaic of the Jewish story. They invite you to explore your own Jewish story and benefit from a wealth of information that is now available to everyone, everywhere, any time – free of charge. Showcasing online and onsite exhibits that cover the breadth of Jewish development around the globe, the Museum of the Jewish People also supports discovering your personal Jewish history’s origins, locations, families and whereabouts.
