The Jerusalem Story Told By Its Gardens

The Jerusalem Story Told By Its Gardens

Created by KKL-JNF in 2017, in celebration of 50 years since the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six Day War, this photography exhibition tells the unique stories of the city from the perspective of its forests and green spaces. The exhibition includes photographs of 14 different parks in and around Jerusalem, along with a document describing the historical, spiritual and environmental significance of each of these special spots. Click the buttons below to view and download the materials, including an introduction to the program, a document describing each of the locations, and one photograph of each of the 14 parks.  

The Overseas Education Department and the Education and Community Division of KKL-JNF are pleased to share our educational activity kits. Feel free to download and use these resources however you see fit. Good luck and enjoy!
