Why is this critically important and relevant now?

Constant calls for boycotts and political actions against Israel are accompanied by false narratives and a deliberate misrepresentation in images. Neuroscience explains that the brain imprints that which is repetitive, whether positive or negative. This imprint determines behavior.

How this impacts Israel and Jewish peoples globally is significant.  By repeatedly and intentionally failing to portray an accurate picture of the lives of  the many types of people who live, work, love, study, and move freely throughout Israel, anti-Semitism has  soared and hatred of Israel continues to grow.

The Impact.

This groundbreaking exhibition is already imprinting positive and accurate images of Israel. Showcasing the work of 20 Israeli photographers, Passage to Israel is a vital part of the solution as it presents beautiful images illustrating Jewish, Muslim, Christian, and other peoples in Israel.

We know that understanding diminishes conflicts. A quarter of all likes on Passage to Israel’s Facebook page come from Arabic peoples who are proud of Israel, affirming that the exhibition is effectively building a bridge.

Israeli artists have an opportunity to display and sell their work, and people worldwide will have an opportunity to see Israel for what this nation is: diverse and beautiful, full of joy and life.
