The Chain of Generations Center

The Chain of Generations Center is one of the most fascinating sites in Israel, artistically and movingly conveying the Jewish nation’s story and its eternal connection with Jerusalem.
Created by world-renowned artists - designer Eliav Nachlieli and glass sculptor Jeremy Langford, the breathtaking exhibit, built in ancient subterranean spaces, takes you on a journey along huge glass columns, each of which represents another link in the Jewish nation’s chain of generations. The Chain of Generations Center took seven years to construct during which amazing archeological discoveries were made that were integrated into the exhibit. The modern sculptures intertwined with ancient remnants reflect the encounter between old and new in Jerusalem.
Ninety tons of glass were used in the intricate layering that creates these awe-inspiring columns. The site contains eight stops with glass sculptures etched with names representing the Jewish nation’s ancestry from the forefathers and foremothers at the Pillars of the Nation through to the return of the Jewish people to Jerusalem in modern times in the exhibits of the Redemption and the Hall of the Fallen in the liberation of Jerusalem. The visit concludes with an amazing sound-and-light show telling the moving story of Moshe Amirav, one of the soldiers who liberated Jerusalem during the Six Day War of 1967.
Ancient and new, glass art, lighting, sound, and archeology blend together to create an unforgettable experience of the Jewish nation’s wondrous Chain of Generations with Jerusalem as the golden thread running through it.

The Chain of Generations Center

The Chain of Generations Center tells the exciting narrative of the Jewish people throughout the generations and their eternal connection to Jerusalem. The Chain of Generations Center showcases a magnificent display of abstract art, using massive glass pillars to depict the chain of generations of the Jewish people. The display was designed by Eliav Nachlieli and the glass pillars were created by artist Jeremy Langford.

The Chain of Generations Center is located adjacent to the Western Wall Plaza and is built in underground niches between ancient structures and findings from the Roman period. The display includes 90 tons of glass, sliced and placed level on top of level. The names of significant people throughout Jewish history, from Adam, through Abraham and Sarah, until our return to Jerusalem in the last century, are engraved in the glass pillars. The exhibit integrates the ancient structures and archeological findings, the huge modern glass creations, and the special background lighting, music, sounds and holograms, creating a sense of actually walking the path of the Jewish people’s narrative. A powerful experience that stimulates the senses awaits all visitors to the Center.
