The Museum of the Jewish People (Beit Hatfutsot) in Tel Aviv is launching its new Core Exhibition in October, and enlisted Michael Douglas to spread the word in a video announcement.
In it, Douglas explains that the newly curated collection “will be one of the largest exhibitions of its kind in the world, exploring all facets of Jewish life, culture, identity and accomplishments. With over 66,000 square feet of exhibition space, it is filled with media, interactives, and hundreds of original artifacts. I encourage everyone to visit and experience this remarkable institution.”
A trip to Israel isn’t required to view these artifacts, as they will be available to view online. In a sneak preview, the museum is unveiling two videos per week for four weeks, each one spotlighting a unique item. The first pair of videos showcase writer Isaac Bashevis Singer’s typewriter and a Sephardic “Book of Esther” scroll from the 16th Century.
Douglas will next be heard in the animated Marvel Universe TV series “What If…?” as Dr. Hank Pym, alongside an all-star voice cast that includes MOTs Paul Rudd, Jeff Goldblum, and Natalie Portman. It’s expected in summer 2021.
