Books of Honour

There is an ancient Jewish belief that names are inscribed annually into the Book of Life in the heavenly realms at Rosh Hashanah.

Yona Kramenetzky, the first Chairman of KKL-JNF (1902-1907 ) introduced the idea of inscribing the names of donors to the Keren Kayemet into books - large tomes known as the 'Books of Honor'. These magnificent objects reside and are available to view at the head office of the KKL at 1 Keren Kayemet Street,  Jerusalem. Donors record significant life-cycle events according to the appropriate Book.

Golden Book
Golden Book

The Golden Book is the most unique of the KKL-JNF Books of Honor and is, in effect, a genealogical tree of the Jewish people. Among its pages are inscriptions recording special events in people’s lives over the past one hundred years of Jewish history. Each volume of the Golden Book describes a different period in the life of the Jewish People and the contribution of KKL-JNF, acting through and on behalf of the people, for the preservation, care and development of the land. An entry in the Golden Book is a mark of esteem and gratitude to the donors who with their contribution, enable a variety of projects to be carried out.
