An Israel bond is an investment in the Jewish homeland.
With each purchase of an Israel bond, the purchaser is helping to sustain and strengthen the State of Israel.
Long before Israel was established in 1948, supporters of the dream invested in Eretz Yisrael, the Land of Israel, hoping that the investment would help the dream be realized.
Today's Israel bonds are a continuation of the practice of investing in Israel that has been happening for generations, and with the ongoing participation of purchasers from around the world will continue for generations to come.
This exhibit brings together photographs of historical investment certificates from the Herzl and Zionism Collection of David Matlow.
