Beth Hatefutsoth is a history and anthropology museum dedicated to Jewish communities scattered throughout the world and identity continuity for 2,000 years ago.
The museum was created in 1978 and is located on the campus of the University of Tel Aviv. It has a permanent exhibition, some of which are temporary, a school and another dedicated to study Jewish folklore.
Beit Hatfutsot is also a center of documentation and preservation of the memory of communities, families and individual Jews who were killed or died in incidents or attacks; also documents the history, the different genealogies, life and creativity in the Jewish Diaspora.
The museum generates activities that encourage the identification and reflection on the Jewish identity, leading also to the possible encounter with Jewish roots of each visitor or participant seminarian.
