About Beit Hatfutsot Database


For over three decades, Beit Hatfutsot has been collecting digital resources in various categories: photography, genealogy, films, Jewish music, history of communities, the meaning of Jewish family names, personalities, and a lexicon of terms in Jewish peoplehood.

Searching the databases is available while visiting Beit Hatfutsot, or by sending us a search order. Search for information about a Jewish community in a specific town, village of city; find out whether there are family trees associated with that community; explore the branches of a specific family tree, find out the meaning of the family name, and search further for related films, photos or music.

© All information from the databases published on this website belongs to Beit Hatfutsot since 1983.
