Ze'ev Jabotinsky was a Zionist leader and the founder of the Revisionist Movement and Betar. He was a writer, poet, publicist and translator who left behind a legacy as a visionary and inspirational leader who passionately fought for the establishment of the Jewish State and the return of the Jewish people.
The Jabotinsky Museum is located on the second floor of the Jabotinsky Institute and is dedicated to telling Jabotinsky's life story. Jabotinsky was the leader of the Etzel movement, which was the pre-State paramilitary force that fought against both the Arabs and British and there are also changing exhibitions on the lower floor of Museum that deal with different aspects of the movement's history.
The exhibitions at the Museum are exciting with both audio and visual material, as well as items from the time period. The two current exhibitions on display are "Ze'ev Jabotinsky- A Historical Life Span" and "The National Sport- the Af-Al-Pi Illegal Immigration".
Extensive educational activities are available at the Jabotinsky Institute, such as video and DVD films on Etzel's history, afternoon activities on Zionism and Israel for new immigrants from FSU and Ethiopia and lectures and seminars that are open to the public.
