What was Tel Aviv’s Nahum Goldman Museum of the Jewish Diaspora has been relaunched as ANU — Museum of the Jewish People. (“Anu” means “We” in Hebrew.) The museum underwent renovation and expansion — including the addition of a new wing — before its reopening under a new name. Among other things, it now features rotating temporary exhibitions, the Alfred H. Moses and Family Synagogue Hall featuring synagogue scale models, and Heroes — Trailblazers of the Jewish People (a children’s interactive exhibition).
Quote: “ANU — Museum of the Jewish People is more than a Museum. This unique global institution tells the ongoing and extraordinary story of the Jewish people. The Museum of the Jewish People connects Jewish people to their roots and strengthens their personal and collective Jewish identity. The Museum of the Jewish People conveys to the world the fascinating narrative of the Jewish people and the essence of the Jewish culture, faith, purpose, and deed while presenting the contribution of world Jewry to humanity.”
