Throughout the Jewish world, students research and write their roots and heritage stories. This marks a milestone moment in the lives of young students in Israel and around the world when they are challenged for the first time to find their own personal and unique story that emphasizes their Jewish identity. My Family Story, led by the Koret International School for Jewish Peoplehood at The Museum of the Jewish People at Beit Hatfutsot, invites young adults to submit an artistic display, based on their roots research, to the International Competition in memory of Manuel Hirsch Grosskopf. This magical mix of displays, each created in a different setting, reveals a meaningful encounter between the participants and their families. The displays and family stories differ, though we can easily find familiar common ground between the diverse art installations. The exhibitors express their ideas, creativity and artistic skills to emphasize family values that are most important to them. Each display artistically expresses one or more of the Jewish peoplehood core concepts: historical memory, Jewish values, Israel, Hebrew and Jewish languages, Jewish culture or a Jewish way of life. Hundreds of displays were submitted to the international competition from all corners of the Jewish world: Latin America, North America, Asia, Europe, Australia, South Africa and Israel. The exceptional displays presented here in this special exhibition are a tribute to the young participants, their families, and Jewish schools and institutions which have profoundly invested in the research and study of individual family stories as well as in the broader story of the Jewish people.
