Safed was the site of the first Hebrew press in Israel, which was set up in 1576 and published Israel’s first Hebrew book a year later. Here you can see a copy of the first newspaper printed in Israel (1863); a copy of “The Palestine Post” of May 16, 1948, announcing the birth of the State of Israel; a centuries-old kabbalistic text printed in Safed; examples of modern Israeli graphics; and many other things.
