Our Vision


Yad Izhak Ben-Zvi is an institution established by a special law of the Knesset, Israel's parliament for the purpose of continuing the Zionist, educational and cultural activities of President Izhak Ben–Zvi and operates from what were the home and offices of the President and his wife, Rahel Yanait, in Jerusalem.

We will be the leading institution in Israel and abroad for the research and dissemination of knowledge relating to Jerusalem, the Land of Israel and the Jewish communities of the East.

We will endeavor to discover, preserve and study the relevant knowledge, employing a variety of modern and innovative means to bring it to the attention of the general public, young and old, constantly aiming to achieve excellence while respecting a wide variety of opinions.

We will implement our goals in collaboration with public and private organizations and institutions in Jerusalem, Israel, and abroad, with an emphasis on world Jewry.

Love of mankind, our nation, our country and the spirit of humility and modesty will inspire and guide all of our work.
