Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem presents:

‘From Darkness to Light’

// An Exhibition of Resilience and Hope, In face of great adversity //

Opens May 20, 2024

October 7, 2023

A moment that changed lives forever. Join us at the Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem (MOTJ) and set out on a journey through "From Darkness to Light," an exhibition unveiling the profound depth of human empathy and the relentless spirit of hope that unites us even when facing unimaginable evil.

Experience first-hand Immersive testimonies.

Brave women from across Israeli society expose their inner raw emotions of pain, loss, and enduring strength that emerged from one of the darkest days in Israel’s history. Visitors will watch eyewitness accounts delivered through innovative testimonial installations. The exhibit space was crafted to bring visitors ‘face-to-face’ with the immersive testimonial experience.

This exhibition not only reveals the darkness of those times, but also the enduring light of hope that shines through acts of unity.

As the harrowing reality unfolds within the exhibit, we will together discover a chronicle of solidarity, a tribute to the hundreds of thousands of people who stood up to support one another—illustrating the Jewish value of 'Arvut Hadadit' (Mutual Responsibility) in its most genuine form.

Curated by the innovative team at AVS Creative Visual Solutions led by Malki Shem Tov, whose son Omer is being held hostage by Hamas, and narrated by Ella Shani who lost her father Itzik on October 7, each part of the exhibition resonates with a personal touch.

Video & Photography

Experience the power of the exhibition through the lenses of filmmakers Noam Shalev and Kobi Sitt, as well as the work of photojournalist Ziv Koren. The movies and pictures illustrate the journey Israel has been on since October 7 – from depths of pain to the uplifting strength of the spirit of the Israeli and Jewish people.

*This exhibition contains sensitive content, including displays and testimonies that may be disturbing to some viewers. It is recommended for visitors aged 16 and over, or with adult supervision.

Address: 32 Halel, Jerusalem Waze
