The United Nations headquarters in New York is filled with artwork and exhibits presented by countries from around the world representing each nation’s unique culture and heritage. Amongst the more prominent exhibits are the “Knotted Gun” from Luxembourg representing a yearning for peace, a tapestry portraying the Great Wall of China and Persian rugs depicting the portraits of past UN Secretary Generals.

Israel’s current exhibit is the cornerstone of an ancient synagogue from Kfar Yasif in the Western Galilee and it symbolizes the historical bond between the Jewish people and the Land of Israel.

At the initiative of Ambassador Danny Danon, Israel’s Mission to the UN has begun a search for an additional exhibit to be displayed in the organization’s headquarters. The exhibit will represent the unique spirit of Israel to the leaders, diplomats and visitors from around the world who walk the halls of the UN. The public is invited to suggest proposals and the chosen exhibit will be presented to the UN.

According to UN rules, the focus of the exhibit should be of the artistic or historical nature and represent the values of the presenting country, or the UN. It must be an original work of art and it may not depict the likeness of a specific individual.

“We welcome this opportunity to present the history and heritage of Israel and the Jewish people to the world,” said Ambassador Danon. “We look forward to choosing an exhibit which will represent Israel proudly to the international community,” the Ambassador continued.
