Hello Safranim, I was recently in Israel and met with Yaara Litwin, Program Manager at Beit Hatfutsot Musuem of the Jewish People at Tel Aviv University. I want to notify you that the museum is launching a new initiative that offers Jewish Institutions and organizations a selection of curated, ready-made photo displays. The displays are offered at no cost, with the intention of sharing Beit Hatfutsot's vast collection of over 400,000 black and white images depicting Jewish history, heritage, and communal life across the globe. They offer various subjects of interest for year-round displays as you can see from the website (Jewish simchas, Jewish sport, High Holidays, etc., https://www.bh.org.il/education/capsule-exhibits-beit-hatfutsot/ ), but the one that is new for this year is called:
Celebrating Israel: Snapshots of the People Behind a Young State A Unique Photo Display in Honor of Israel's 70th Anniversary This comprehensive exhibit showcases a selection of historical moments that embody the great endeavor that was the establishment of the State of Israel, as seen through the eyes of its people. Highlighted within are the experiences of Jews from around the world who escaped hatred and fear to live freely in a Jewish state. The panels and personal stories on display enable viewers to explore Israel's major historical events and consider the lives of its early immigrants - what it took for them to reach the State of Israel and how they adjusted to life in their new homeland. Organized sequentially and by theme, Celebrating Israel gives viewers insight into the country's formation. If you wish to mark Israel's 70th Anniversary in the most beautiful, moving, and educative manner - order the exhibition and display it in your synagogue, school, or community center. https://www.bh.org.il/education/israels-70th-anniversary/ For further information contact Yaara and she will send you a contract agreement and then she emails you the exhibit's PDF file, which includes 29 panels that should be printed and mounted on at least 30 x 20 boards, which is easy to request from a printer. It makes a lovely, professional, curated exhibit for your library and you can keep it up as long as you want. ________________________________ Curator: Yaara Litwin Concept & Design: Neta Harel Yaara Litwin "Capsule Exhibits" Manager ya...@bh.org.il<mailto:ya...@bh.org.il> Lisa Silverman Library Director, Burton Sperber Jewish Community Library [https://reg139.imperisoft.com/Pages/System/Image.aspx?id2=78] Address: 15600 Mulholland Drive, Los Angeles, California 90077 Phone: (310) 440-1264 Email: lisa.silver...@aju.edu<mailto:lisa.silver...@aju.edu> Website: http://library.aju.edu<http://library.aju.edu/> American Jewish University - celebrating 70 years of inspiring innovation in education, community life and cultural experiences.
