For 2,000 years, the Jewish people have yearned to return to their Promised Land. Wherever they were, they always faced East in their prayers, never giving up hope that one day they or their progeny would return. They were proud to drink wine or have a charity box in their home from the Land of Israel.
In May of 1948, their collective dreams were finally realized when David Ben-Gurion announced to the world the creation of the State of Israel.
At this historic moment, 71 years later, the Simon Wiesenthal Center is in the final stages of building its Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem – MOTJ – in the heart of the city center.
The MOTJ is within walking distance to the Old City and the Western Wall. It is a few blocks from the King David and Waldorf Astoria hotels, two blocks from Ben Yehuda Street, around the corner from the Mamilla shopping mall and in close proximity to the American Embassy, the Knesset, Supreme Court, and the Prime Minister and President’s residences. World leaders and dignitaries who come to Jerusalem will visit the Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem for years to come.
To accomplish our goal, we are looking to partner with philanthropists and visionaries from the United States and around the world who will support this once-in-a-lifetime project.
Donors to the Museum of Tolerance Jerusalem will have the additional privilege of linking their name in perpetuity in the center of Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people.
