Thirty members of the International Women’s Club (IWC) recently visited Beit Hatfutsot. Members include spouses of diplomats serving in Israel, of CEO’s of foreign companies, of Israeli diplomats serving overseas, and leading women in society. The head of the forum is Ms. Yvette Trubowitch. Among the guests was Cathrine d’Elzius Cornet, wife of the Belgium Ambassador to Israel who expressed her desire to return to Beit Hatfutsot for another visit.
The guests were received by Dan Tadmor, CEO of Beit Hatfutsot, Irit Admoni Perlman, Director of The Israel Friends of Beit Hatfutsot and Enia Zeevi Kupfer, Director of Israel, Europe & South America Desks.
The women visited the exhibition “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait”, presented in cooperation with the Jewish Museum in London. The exhibition displays the singer’s story from her childhood until her death. It emphasizes her relationship with her family and her professional career. They also toured the exhibit “Dream Weavers: From Jewish Tailors to Top Fashion Designers,” which displays dresses and accessories of top Jewish designers around the world.
At the conclusion of the tour, Dan Tadmor thanked them for coming to the Museum and their interest in the ongoing story of the Jewish People. “Beit Hatfutsot, which opened its doors in 1978, now stands before the commencement of a major renewal of its Core Exhibition. At the first phase The Synagogue Hall and the family gallery will be open to the public in 2016, and the new Core exhibition will be completed by 2018.” He then added, “The new display will focus on the contribution of Jews in art, one of the most important disciplines in which Jews throughout history excelled in.”
