Capsule Exhibits by Beit Hatfutsot
Beit Hatfutsot is launching a new initiative that offers Jewish Institutions and organizations, a selection of curated, ready-made photo displays. The displays are offered at no cost, with the intention of sharing Beit Hatfutsot’s vast collection of over 400,000 black and white images depicting Jewish history, heritage, and communal life across the globe.
