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.

Documenting Israel: Visions of 75 Years
A journey through time in honor of the 75th Independence Day of the State of Israel: Israel through the camera lenses of international photographers, including Robert Capa, David "Chim" Seymour, Micha Bar-Am, Sigalit Landau, Inga Morath and others.
The Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem is a place where individuals from across the world gather, converse openly, and feel at home.
With its four open walls that fill the space with light, visitors immediately feel welcomed and at ease. The museum is in the shape of a dove, representing its pursuit of peace and hope for a better future. The building's focal point is the monumental crisscrossed staircase, emphasizing that true tolerance and understanding come from engagement, listening to one another, and immersing ourselves in others' perspectives.
During the riots that broke out in May 2021 in the mixed cities, actors of Young Voices ensemble – Jewish and Arab teenagers – continued to come to the theater and created a play dealing with racism, deeply rooted in the tribes of Israeli society.
