Documenting Israel's 1948 Generation


Time is running out for this project. The narrative of Israel’s founding generation is so momentous, so dramatic, so passionate, it is incumbent upon everyone to hear it for him or herself. Yet the opportunity to hear this story first hand is slipping away as Israel’s founders are passing from the stage. Your contribution will preserve the heritage of 1948 for the next generation and beyond. Please consider sponsoring one or more of Toldot Yisrael’s interviews:

$500 – Interview in Israel
$1,000 – Interview abroad
$1,500 – Indexing, translation, and captioning of interview
