Tomorrow (Tuesday), a huge and moving painting will be unveiled at the entrance to Israel, in Israel. The work includes the integration of technological and scientific progress in Israel. The mural is a huge work that will cover the entrance wall to Israel in Terminal 3, and is about 50 meters long, and 5 meters high.

The mural is an initiative of ILAN, which works to strengthen relations between Israel and the countries of Central and South America and the Hispanic community in the USA, a community that is growing in its political and economic influence.

The piece "Am Yisrael Chai" will begin its journey in Israel at the entrance gate to Israel, and will be presented in other locations throughout Israel, places of historical and state value, as well as in the Jewish communities around the world in Europe, South America, and the USA.

The mural is a painting, graphic art painted on a wall, originating from South American and Mexican art.

The mural "Am Yisrael Chai" describes 4,000 years of Jewish history, and tells the story of the Jewish people from the creation of Adam through the creation of the nation of Israel, the forefathers of the nation, the exodus from Egypt, the Temple, prophets and kings, the exiles in Spain and Europe, the sages of Spain and Hasidism, the Zionist vision and realization, beginning from Herzl through all major Zionist activists, Rabbi Kook and Rabbi Herzog, the Holocaust, the immigration to Israel and the establishment of the state. A very significant chapter tells the story of the State of Israel in its 75 years through its creation, development, wars, innovation, landscapes and roads, its leaders, scientists, thinkers and culture and all the significant founding events of our state, our people, and our independent country.

The initiative began about a year ago with the blessing of President Isaac Herzog, on the occasion of Israel's 75th birthday.

The piece that will be revealed this Tuesday was launched a few months ago in Mexico, in a ceremony attended by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the State of Mexico, Marcelo Eberard, the heads of the Jewish communities in South America, and ministers and dignitaries.

Isaac Asa, president and founder of ILAN, said: "We were privileged, together with the members of the Ilan organization and the leaders of the Ilan communities in Latin America, to complete the most comprehensive and detailed artistic mural painting project (wall painting) in the history of the Jewish people and in the entire world - in fact, this is the only place in the world where the heritage and history of a people is concentrated in one place and in an accessible and artistic way that everyone can understand, be moved and empathize with. The people of Israel have come a long way through the generations, the Jewish people have contributed values ​​of morality and social solidarity and innovation to all humanity. We carried out a complex logistical operation to bring this mural to Israel. Whoever enters Israel will be able to see with their own eyes the story of history, the future and the significant contribution of the Jewish people and the State of Israel to the family of nations."
