Beit Hatfutsot - The Museum of the Jewish People is deeply saddened at the loss of a dear friend and an ardent supporter of the vision of the Museum.
During its most challenging period, 2003-2005, Sharon initiated the Law of Beit Hatfutsot
, designating Beit Hatfutsot as "The National Center for Jewish Communities in Israel and around the World" and as a national museum of the State of Israel.
Beit Hatfutsot sends condolences to the family.
