About ANU – Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv, Israel

ANU – Museum of the Jewish People celebrates the multiculturalism of Jewish diversity and adopts an inclusive, pluralistic approach.

The Museum opened in 1978 thanks to the vision of Nahum Goldmann, president of the World Jewish Congress 1954-1977. In 2005, the Israeli Knesset passed the Beit Hatfutsot Law that defines Beit Hatfutsot as “the National Center for Jewish communities in Israel and around the world.”
