What Israeli Leaders Are Saying
Founder of the State of Israel
The more I contemplate the Book of Books, I am impressed with the magnificent illumination which shines forth from its pages. Three thousand years ago, the Hebrew Bible bequeathed to humanity high ethical standards which, even today, have yet to be realized. Let us return to the source of this illumination for the inspiration it contains.
President of Israel
There is no other book in the entire world quite like the Hebrew Bible, whose pages are old and withered, but whose ideas are fresh and alive. It is eternal — and has significance to each new generation.
Prime Minister of Israel
At the beginning the Bible was a creation by and for the Hebrews. Then the Hebrew Bible broke onto the world, because at the height of Hellenistic civilization’s great accomplishments and treasured works, it suddenly became obvious that the Hebrew scriptures contained a treasure house not less significant. In fact, viewed as a whole, there is no other human creation that can compare with it in terms of its artistry, ideals, faith and sheer influence on the world.
Minister of Tourism
The projects of Israel Bible Park both in Israel and throughout the world, present the Book of Books to hundreds of millions of Bible lovers in the world. People of the World Inscribe the Bible, as well as the plans to develop Israel Bible Park into an international center for two billion people devoted to the Bible worldwide, are important contributions in maintaining through global communications the connections between the Bible, Bible students and the State of Israel. Building this educational park and tourism venue will greatly enrich the visit of three million of tourists coming to Israel each year.
Prominent Israeli Novelist
As someone who sees the Bible as the bedrock of his cultural identity, I wish to applaud Israel Bible Society for all of its activities in Israel and abroad.
I would like to express my support for this initiative as well as give my blessing to the Friends of Israel Bible Land in Bible-loving communities and congregations around the world.
Former Member of Knesset
Minister in the Government of Israel
As a former Minister of Tourism, I am thrilled to see Israel Bible Park developing as a place where the enduring relevance of the Bible’s values to modern day life will be experienced. It will help unite individuals of all ages from every faith and background, creating an opportunity to explore the life and the values of those who lived thousands of years ago so that we can gain a deeper understanding of the meaning of coexistence.
