Forests of the JNF, 1965 (KRA\441)The Central Zionist Archives holds a rich and diverse collection of posters and handbills from the period of the Yishuv and the early years of the State of Israel. The posters and handbills were displayed on bulletin boards around the cities, and that way messages and information were transferred to the wider public. The posters and handbills were used to address a wide array of subjects: Zionism, settlements, security, art, theater, health and more.
At this time of the year, the weather is warm and pleasant, everything is flourishing and we have a few days off from work. Those are great excuses to go out into nature for a hike or a picnic (or barbecue if you prefer…). We gathered posters about forests, published by the Jewish National Fund. So go for a walk in our beautiful country, and don’t forget to be careful if you light a fire in a forest!
