The Chain of Generations Center

The Chain of Generations Center includes a visit to seven rooms, titled the “Chain of Names” – each one depicting a different period in the chain of generations of the Jewish people, from our Forefathers and the Twelve Tribes until the current period of Redemption – the establishment of the State of Israel and life in the modern Jewish state. At the end of the tour visitors are invited to sit in the “Hall of Light” and watch a special sound-and-light show that displays the emotional story of Moshe Amirav, one of the soldiers who liberated Jerusalem during the Six Day War.

The visit lasts about 50 minutes.

Guidance in English and Hebrew.
Audioguides are available in Russian, German, Spanish and French.

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.
