Jews throughout the ages have been known as The People of the Book. Emerging from our long history of Torah study, the passion for learning has borne a wealth of Jewish and Israeli literature in every possible genre, language, and medium.
From romantic Zionist novels to archeological histories of our ancestral homeland, from ideological debates to memoirs of our leaders, pioneers and immigrants, we most certainly have no shortage of books about Israel.
The writers of Israel come from every corner of the world and ensure that the legacy of The Book will continue to pass on for generations to come.
Through the resulting collection of uniquely special literature, one can discover their connection and passion for Israel, meeting the characters of the Israeli imagination and dreaming of the landscape, culture, traditions, passion, and chutzpah that embodies the Israeli spirit.

Israel's Declaration of Independence:
One of the fundamental documents of Israel's history. The Land of Israel was the birthplace of the Jewish people. Here their spiritual, religious and political identity was shaped. Here they first attained to statehood, created cultural values of national and universal significance and gave to the world the eternal Book of Books.
