We are very proud and happy to welcome you on the new webpage of the Polish Institute in Tel Aviv.
The Polish Institute was opened in June 2000, being the first cultural outpost of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs outside Europe (along with the Polish Cultural Institute in NYC) and since then works with passion and devotion to present contemporary Poland, its social and cultural achievements.
Our main goal - which is the goal of all Polish Institutes abroad - is to promote Polish culture and heritage in Israel. Moreover, we see the Institute as a bridge between both the countries and as an institution which supports and encourages Polish-Israeli contacts and joint projects. We do it in cooperation with leading cultural and educational institutions and festivals in Israel.
We actively take part in cultural life of Israel, support various initiatives in the fields of the arts and science, offer educational programs for teachers and guides, organise Polish language courses and offer a rich collection of books, periodicals and films at our library.
The Polish Year in Israel 2008-2009 was a mile stone in mutual Polish-Israeli relations. We have built up a strong network of contacts between people and institutions in both the two countries. This network is still growing. New initiatives, inspired by events, workshops and friendships made last year, are strongly visible and constantly developing. We are open to all these new ideas and happy to support them.We hope that you find on our new webpage plenty of interesting information and that it will be an incentive for you to participate in the cultural and scientific events organised by the Institute and our Israeli partners.
Please share with us your opinions and ideas. You are warmly welcome to contact us via the website or visit in person at the Polish Institute.
With best wishes,
