75 TREASURES - CELEBRATING ISRAEL AT SEVENTY-FIVE
To celebrate Israel’s 75th birthday, our member, David Matlow of Toronto, Canada has selected 75 artifacts from his personal collection of Zionist and Herzl memorabilia and shared them in a new book, 75 Treasures: Celebrating Israel at Seventy-Five. The pages of the book are filled with photos and stories of these inspiring items, and the book challenges each of us to add our own page to Israel’s continuing story.
This 48-page publication contains many pieces from the world-renowned Matlow Collection that will help add context to the story of Israel's miraculous journey from concept to country.
The download is free.
We have commissioned a limited edition commemorative "challenge coin" to mark this important event!
