Israel - Repairing the World

Present-day Israel is a modern country that leads the world in many ways. Over the years, Israeli companies have introduced innovations in the fields of medicine, agriculture, sports, culture, science, technology, and others, that have changed and improved the way people around the world live and connect with each other.

Education above all

Following the tradition of past generations, education in Israel is very important. Education is the key to the future. The graduates of Israeli schools and universities are producing the most advanced technologies in the fields of computers, telecommunication, medicine, agriculture, and biotechnology.

Connecting people

Israel is a world leader in providing communication technologies that connect people around the world. Motorola was one of the first global companies to open a research centre in Israel. The Israeli company Comverse developed the first Voicemail system. Today Comverse leads the world’s messaging market.

Making the desert bloom

Israeli scientists and farmers have always worked together on improving agricultural yields and quality. Israel’s experience with desert farming, desert fishing, limited freshwater supplies and the know-how of turning energy from the plentiful sunshine into much needed electricity helps people in dry regions around the world.

Reaching out

Israel has a long tradition of providing help to ease hunger, poverty, and disease in other countries. Israeli rescue teams are always ready to respond when natural or man-made disasters happen. Israeli innovations and technologies provide light, clean water, food and proper medical care to many thousands of people in Africa.

Ma tovu ohalekha Ya'akov, mishk'notekha Yisra'el.

– How lovely are your tents, O Jacob, your dwelling places, O Israel! –
Just as true in present times, as it was in biblical times, perhaps even more so, it is hard to look at Israel without the feelings of awe over its many accomplishments in fields as diverse as agriculture, education, medicine, science, and technology. Despite its many enemies and its small size, Israel’s creative energy makes a huge contribution to the global marketplace and quality of life worldwide.
Rabbi Wise’s superbly written and attractively illustrated book shows why Israel ought to serve as an example to us all. Written for young readers, the subject matter is explained in simple, easy to understand language – despite its scientific complexity – supported by many colourful photographs.
