The National Library of Israel (NLI) opened its new building on October 29 in the midst of war, and quickly pivoted to reviving the soul and spirit of the country. Join Oren Weinberg, CEO of NLI, for an update about the Library’s operations during the war; Naomi Schacter, Director of Partnerships and International Relations, for a virtual tour of the building; Dr. Raquel Ukeles, Head of Collections, for a discussion about the Library’s leading role in the global collection of testimony, footage and documentation of the massacres, war, and the aftermath; and NLI’s Education Department, for an overview of the Library’s work addressing the needs of newly displaced children and families in Israel as well as other wartime education initiatives.
Inspired by the expanded view of 21st century libraries as centers of lively discourse, NLI USA developed the Signature Speakers Series to probe issues of our day. In this way, we seek to share the Library’s vast collections, outstanding experts, and leading partners with the broader community.
