The History of Israel as a Nation of Justice and Charity

This is believed to be the only museum exhibition in Israel specifically dedicated to the concept of charitable giving. As such, it offers a fascinating chance to experience a variety of perspectives on charity in Jewish history for children and adults.

The exhibit includes a series of personal profiles which detailing the challenges faced by Israel’s needy – and how you help make a difference in their lives.

Volunteers and visitors can follow the progress of virtual donations on interactive screens, and see how contributions of time and money spread out to help hundrends of people in palces near and distant.

Our goal at Pantry Packers is to ensure that the time you spend with us gives you and your children an educational and meaningful charity experience. We hope that this new center contributes to that experience. and we look forward to hosting you here in Jerusalem very soon.
