Who We Are

BEIT AVI CHAI is a Jewish cultural hub in Jerusalem dedicated to the creation, development and expression of Jewish thought and ideas.

Programs created and offered by BAC seek to engage a wide and diverse Jewish population, motivating participants to learn of the richness and beauty of Jewish culture and ideas and encouraging participants toward their further exploration.

Beit Avi Chai, motivated by AVI CHAI’s mission, is committed to the perpetuation of the Jewish people, Judaism, and the centrality of the State of Israel to the Jewish people, with the objectives of:

  •  

Encouraging mutual understanding and sensitivity among Jews of different religious backgrounds and commitments to Jewish tradition.

  •  

Nurturing and developing an affinity towards Jewish tradition among those of the Jewish faith.

 

 

 

 

Beit AVI CHAI is driven by the understanding that passion for Judaism is moored to Jewish study, an appreciation and awareness of Jewish culture, history and literature, and respect toward Jews of different cultural backgrounds, practices, ethnic traditions and religious expressions.

The four-story building has a 270-seat auditorium with a stage suitable for lectures, film screenings, and small-scale shows; eight rooms of various sizes equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the various lectures, workshops and activities; a Gallery for exhibitions and a unique reading room.
