The main aim of this site is to provide useful information about Israel, Israel / South Africa relations and the service the Embassy provides. It is designed to give access to a range of information and data relating to different events both locally and in Israel.
The State of Israel is a modern miracle. Comprising people speaking over eighty different languages. We have revived the ancient Hebrew language, created a vibrant democracy, and cultivated a diverse and exciting culture. We also stand at the forefront of medical, educational, and scientific innovation. We have created a first class high-tech industry, extending from Tel Aviv to the Silicon Valley.
In the words of our founding father, Theodore Herzl, "if you will it, it is no dream."
We hope that, through the wealth of information on this site, you will be able to reflect on the Israel behind the headlines, and learn more about our unique country, history and people.
