Description
   Receipt to Meir Dizengoff (1861-1936), Zionist politician and the first mayor of Tel Aviv by the Jewish Palestine Exploration Society. The Israel Exploration Society (IES) was founded by a group of Jewish intellectuals in 1914 as the Society for the Reclamation of Antiquities, then renamed the Jewish Palestine Exploration Society. Its purpose was to further historical, geographical and archaeological research concerning the Land of Israel.

The Israel Exploration Society plays a key role in archaeological research covering all periods, from prehistoric times to the Ottoman period. It coordinates much of the multi-institutional archaeological research carried out by both Israeli and foreign archaeological expeditions in Israel.

Major activities undertaken by the IES include organizing excavations, enlisting financial support for archaeological projects, publishing excavation reports and liaison and cooperation with Israeli and foreign institutions in the field of publication and in a collective effort to promote the cause of archaeology.
