In Or Yehuda


"This project came to illuminate the part of the veterans in Or Yehuda who shaped its character"

The Autographers is an international documentary art project that brings together artists and witnesses to historical events. The traveling exhibition reflects history through the eyes of the people who experienced it through talented artists who document them. In doing so, it connects the different generations, communities and cultures in the city.

We were excited to arrive in Or Yehuda for the first time and discover the journey we went through. The planes hovering over the skies of the city near Ben Gurion Airport, symbolize more than anything the freedom and opportunities that the city knew how to take advantage of and thanks to their development from the neighborhoods and barracks that formed its beginning. ", And they are all proud of the successes of one by one of us." It was this solidarity and human love that united the people of Or Yehuda, to go out together and encourage the Haik brothers, who became a football legend, at Shabbat games, and she was the one who inspired the song "God gave you As a gift, "wrote the poet David Halfon, a resident of the city. Halfon also described the love of the residents of Or Yehuda for their city, in a song he wrote," Or Yehuda - the light of me. " To its development._ cc781905-5cde-3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ All the documented have left a mark on many hearts, and all testify that their identity is connected with Or Yehuda and for its future have always acted.

The products of our journey for the sake of memories, give space and respect to the past and heritage, but also a fresh spirit with a look ahead through the eyes of the creators. This journey has been exciting for all of us, but there is no doubt in my heart that this is just the beginning and the connections that have been forged will continue to deepen their roots.

The mayor's remarks

"In my opinion, it is very important to cherish the heritage and past of our city."

The "Autographers" project, which is courtesy of Mifal Hapayis, provides us with a window into the many years of work of veterans in a variety of different and diverse fields . Their lives. This venture came to provide a stage for those people in an inspiring exhibition that excites everyone who has been exposed to it.

The stories of childhood and adolescence in a city that shapes its face in the shadow of the development of the country, shed light on whole days in which they were content with little and lived happily and in unity. As in the past, so today - Or Yehuda has maintained its unique character immersed in nature, and continues to inspire and calm its residents and leads families to plant their pavilion there. The connection between our future and our heritage, which is the source of our pride, is our job to nurture, so I see the Autographers venture as an important project that gives a place of honor and strengthens the city's veterans as well as the bond between generations.

The documentation process was led with great success by the talented artists of the area, from all age groups, from the fields of photography and writing. Their beautiful products reveal to the general public, especially to the younger generation, the long journey we have made from the first days of the city to the present day.

I thank all those involved in the craft, first of all to the city's veterans for their contribution and willingness to tell their story and share it with us, to the quality photographers and writers on the investment and documentation, and to the Community Resources Department at the Shahak Division
