 Photographers Judith Harpaz and Meir Elipur embody everything good about the inside of the sabra. They’re warm, friendly, open, and want to share their love for Israel with others.

Commemorating the 68th birthday of the State of Israel, the dynamic duo embarked on a project to photograph 68 individuals from every sector of Israeli society. “Eyes of the Nation” will be on display at the Jerusalem Theater starting May 9. This mosaic of photographs shows only the eyes of each individual. Elipur explains the reasoning behind this artistic choice.
