This recently dedicated center serves as your introduction to the Pantry Packers experience. We invite you to browse a visual history of charity dating back to the time of Abraham, with memorabilia and explanations charting how charitable giving developed in Eretz Yisrael in recent centuries.
Archival items on display include bank documentation from the Ottoman Bank in Jerusalem, registers of families that needed support in the 1800’s and a coin and stamp collection from the 19th and 20th centuries.
This is believed to be the only museum exhibition in Israel specifically dedicated to the concept of charitable giving so it offers a fascinating and educational experience for children and adults alike.
It really offers a total different perspective on Israeli history.
Bringing you back into the present time, we invite you to watch and hear a series of personal profiles, which detail the challenges faced by Israel’s needy – and how your volunteerism helps make a difference in their lives.
Volunteers young and old can enjoy the interactive screens and virtual donation and see how your time and charity can spread far and wide to help hundreds of people in so many different ways.
Our goal at Pantry Packers is to ensure that the time you spend here is not just contributing to those in need but also gives you and your children an educational and meaningful experience. We very much hope that this new center contributes to that experience and we look forward to hosting you here in Jerusalem very soon.
