The Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv, Beit Hatfutsot, is launching a $60 million capital campaign in New York to raise money for renovations and new exhibits and programming.

The “New Vision” campaign seeks to continue the transition of Beit Hatfutsot from the Museum of the Diaspora, which was founded in 1978 with donations from New Yorkers, into the Museum of the Jewish People. According to a statement, the revamped museum will contain an expanded archive, school and interactive exhibits.

In 2005 the Knesset passed the Beit Hatfutsot Law that redefined Beit Hatfutsot as “the national center for Jewish communities in Israel and around the world.”

The Nadav Foundation and the Israeli government have allocated nearly $27 million to fund the changes. A fundraising gala will be held Dec. 1 in New York.
