The Project

Following the huge success of 5 years ago, Israel75-Building Artistic Connections will once again offer the opportunity for school students to explore, connect and reflect on the cultural, artistic and historical narratives of Israel via a selection of objects from a range of Israeli museums. Brought to you through the generous support of PaJeS, UJIA, UnitEd and WZO, this innovative and exciting international  educational initiative will culminate in a wonderful celebration and exhibition online, in the UK and in Israel throughout Israel's 75th year.

The objects selected by our partner museums include the paintings and sculptures by leading Israeli artists, postcards and manuscripts written by Theordore Herzl and David Ben Gurion, objects brought over during treacherous journeys to the state and much more.
