Israel's largest cultural institution, the Israel Museum, is dedicated to recording and safeguarding the relics that chronicle the tale of the Jewish people. Housing thousands of years of ancient artifacts pertaining to Jewish culture all over the world, the Israel Museum’s mission is to educate and encourage knowledge of Judaism’s rich and fascinating history to people all over the globe. One of their methods of fulfilling this dream is to create stunning replicas and adaptations of the original pieces in their encyclopedic collections and distribute them worldwide. With each captivating replication comes its own certification of authenticity, as well as a brief summary of that piece’s historical background in both Hebrew and English.
