About Us

The National Library of Israel is the prime institution of national memory – not only of the Israeli nation, but of the Jewish people around the world. Its mission is to serve as a home for the collections, archives, manuscripts, documents, maps, music and other items of unique national, historic or cultural significance; and to pass these treasures on to the next generations.

Bringing History to Life

The Education department’s mission is twofold: Bringing the past to life, and also bringing the past into our lives.

We present primary sources in a way that brings the past to life, that exposes the learners to the personal stories behind grand historical events and that gives them a glimpse into dramatic moments from the past. We explore the ways in which the past can teach us more about ourselves, about the community we live in and inform us on how to deal with dilemmas and questions we grapple with in the present.
