As a host to more than 12,000 international visitors per year, The House of Israel has become a vital resource for portrayal of Israel’s true past and present and a friendly gathering place for the community. Visitors learn about the diverse faces of Israel, her history, values, demographics and her contribution to the world. We showcase Israeli culture, history, and innovation, and provide a welcoming environment for our guests.

INTERIM MAYOR TODD GLORIA PRAISES HOUSE OF ISRAEL …“I want you all to mark your calendars for 2015 when we will be celebrating the centennial of the Panama-California Exposition, the event that put San Diego and Balboa Park on the map internationally,” said the councilman. “We are hoping to have all kinds of new and wonderful improvements in the park in time for that Centennial and the House of Israel is leading the way. .. It is now the best cottage—I might get in trouble for saying that, but it has set a high bar for everyone to aspire to in time for 2015.”
