Mission Statement

Welcoming more than 25,000 international visitors per year, The House of Israel is 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, innovation, and much more, and provide a welcoming environment for our guests.

Description

The House of Israel is one of the 32 exposition cottages that make up the House of Pacific Relations located on the beautiful grounds of Balboa Park, San Diego, California.

Opened in 1948, we are among the first public buildings in the U.S. to fly the flag of Israel!

Volunteers greet visitors from around the world, share information about Israel, serve delicious bourekas (Israeli street food--feta cheese and spinach in a flaky pastry crust), and participate in special events through the year.
