What we do

An "international embassy" for peace, the Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem strengthens Israel's reputation across the world, while building bridges between diverse cultures and religions.

Under our "open tent," individuals from all walks of life will gather and enact change based on shared universal values. Together, they will challenge racism, antisemitism, discrimination, stereotypes, hatred, and acts of verbal and physical violence – and create a better tomorrow.
