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.
Even before Tu Bishvat became the festival of tree-planting, various Jewish communities carried out the custom of eating fruits from Eretz Israel on this day. In anticipation of Tu Bishvat we have collected a selection of posters showing various fruits typical of Eretz Israel. Happy Tu Bishvat!
