Cultural Affairs

  •    

    Despite its small size, Israel's storied history contributes to its vibrant and culturally diverse character. Four thousand years of Jewish heritage, over a century of Zionism, and more than half a century of modern statehood have contributed to a culture which has created an identity of its own, while preserving the uniqueness of 70 different communities.

    A largely immigrant society, Israel’s creative expression has absorbed many different cultural and social influences, as it blends tradition and innovation, and strives to steer a course between Israeli particularism and universalism. The constant search for cultural identity is expressed through energetic creativity in a broad range of art forms, appreciated and enjoyed by a great many people as part of daily life. 

    The mission of the Cultural Affairs department is to bring the best and most exciting of Israel’s culture to the Southeast region.
