JERUSALEM, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Gordon Robertson of CBN and his special VIP group visited the Friends Of Zion Museum in Jerusalem, for a private guided tour. For Robertson, this was a one-of-a-kind experience: "It has been a great honor to visit in such a marvelous place. I believe that the museum is an inspiration for the people who visit and should be the first stop for tourists on a trip to Israel."
For Robertson, perhaps the most memorable part of the tour has been during his time at the exhibition of "the light in the darkness," in which the time of saving Jews during the Holocaust, and the contribution made by the Righteous Among the Nations comes alive through a state-of-the-art light show. For Robinson, it has been a while since he has found himself so moved by a combination of art, technology and history.
The Friends of Zion Museum opened in Jerusalem last September and has set itself a goal of serving as a bridge, connecting people from around the world and motivating more communities to come out in support of Israel.
The museum includes state-of-the-art exhibitions and displays, including 3D displays and a unique audiovisual innovation developed exclusively for the museum.
The Friends of Zion museum emphasizes the saving of Jews during the Holocaust and the contribution made by the Righteous Among the Nations. It highlights the connection to Zionism and praises the work of those who have come to the aid of the Jewish people in recent times – through the British Mandate, the Holocaust and up until the establishment of the State of Israel.
The museum is the result of the hard work of thousands of supporter of Israel from all over the world, showcasing the contribution of Israel's friends such as former US President Harry Truman, former UK Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, Prof. George Bush, who was a relative of former US President George Bush, Orde Wingate, as well as the Righteous Among the Nations – individuals such as Oskar Schindler, Raoul Wallenberg, and the ten Boom family, who risked their lives to save the lives of Jews who were being persecuted all over the world.
Museum Address: Friends of Zion Museum, 20 Yosef Rivlin Street, Jerusalem. The Museum is currently open to visitors, reservation recommended on the Museum's website: www.fozmuseum.com or by emailing our reservation department at firstname.lastname@example.org or +972-2-532-9400.
