The Institute for the History of Polish Jewry and Israel-Poland Relations was established in a meeting of the Trustees of Tel Aviv University in 2004, on the basis of a donation by the industrialist Rami Unger and the yields of special trusts that were at the disposal of the Unit for the History of the Jews in Poland at the Goldstein-Goren Diaspora Research Center.

The goals of the Institute are to develop and promote at Tel Aviv University critical research and academic instruction on all matters related to the legacy and culture of Poland's Jews. The Institute collaborates with academic and public institutions and organizations in Israel and throughout the world in promoting its activities.

The following are among the Institute's areas of focus: publication of books and research projects, encouragement of young scholars through the distribution of grants, organization of conferences and sponsorship of academic events, responsibility for instruction of the Polish language at the University, and study tours to Eastern Europe.
