Founded in 1920 by its namesake, the archaeologist, Semitic philologist and professor of Hebrew Bible Gustaf Dalman (1855-1941), the Dalman Institute is committed to the collection, preservation, and dissemination of materials relevant to the history of the land of Israel and of Hebrew printing. The Institute houses two collections of outstanding significance for Jewish Studies. Its Hebraica wing features a large number of early printed Hebrew books (including first editions), while the Palestine wing boasts world-class collections of early Holy Land images (ca. 20,000 slides and photographs) and plant specimens (ca. 2,000). The Institute makes as many of its treasures as possible available online to the scholarly and general public, and also seeks collaborative partnerships with comparable institutes and collections world-wide.
