The Museum of the Jewish people at Beit Hatfutsot is more than a museum. It is a national center for Jewish communities in Israel and worldwide, which tells the unique and ongoing story of the Jewish people. It is also a story in constant renewal. Beit Hatfutsot provides the next generation a key to understanding their Jewish identity and to reinforcing their sense of belonging to the Jewish peple.

The Koret International School for Jewish Peoplehood at Beit Hatfutsot educates towards a sense of belonging and commitment to the Jewish world that reflects itself in action. Our mission is promoting Jewish Peoplehood, strengthening one’s Jewish identity and connecting worldwide Jewish communities, so that everyone feels a part of the broader ongoing story of the Jewish people.

Jewish Peoplehood refers to the awareness and identification of Jewish individuals to the collective Jewish people via various common components: historical memory, Jewish values, Jewish culture and creativity, Hebrew and Jewish languages, a multifaceted connection to Israel and a Jewish way of life.
