Hamakom - World Jewish Center
Creating an icon which tells the narrative of of world Jewry as one of celebration
Hamakom – World Jewish Center is the most ambitious and far-reaching project of its kind today. Filling the need for a ‘must visit’ cultural institution in Tel Aviv, the museum aims very high in its architecture, exhibits, scope, and passion. The World Jewish Center has secured a prime location in Tel Aviv-Yafo at the northwestern edge of Hayarkon Park, close to Tel Aviv Port.
The World Jewish Center will exhibit the spectacular array of Jewish ideas, education, thought, and creativity in every conceivable field. Judaism is writ large in global history, and the museum will engage visually and intellectually — and on a grand scale — with all things Jewish over the course of humanity’s journey. The building has been designed by award-winning architect, Frank Gehry. In keeping with Tel Aviv-Yafo as a ‘non-stop city’, the museum and its various experiences will have extended operating hours.
The remarkable contributions of the Jewish people in the modern era — far out of proportion to their small number — is a cause for celebration and a subject for exploration. Around the world, almost 70% of Jewish museums focus on the narrative of the Holocaust and the theme of survival. The World Jewish Center will uniquely illuminate the contributions Jewish people have given to the world. It will also strengthen Tel Aviv-Yafo position as a major tourist and cultural destination.
