Masaryk and the Holy Land

In the spring of 1927, President Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk arrived in the Holy Land to visit the Yishuv - the Jews living in the Land of Israel. It was historically the first visit of the official head of state to the Mandatory Palestine. The exhibition at the Beit Knesset brings photographs from the first visit of the then head of state to the country and other Czech-Israeli stories. The exhibition is organized by the Czech Center in cooperation with Beit Knesset, the Embassy of the Czech Republic and the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Tel Aviv on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak Republic and the 70th anniversary of the state of Israel.
