As part of Israel's 40th anniversary celebrations, Jerusalem will play host to the National Stamp Exhibition, "INDEPENDENCE 40", which is to be held in the spacious halls of Binyanei Ha'uma Convention Centre, during April 1988.

Although it has been organised as a National Stamp Exhibition, about 90 well-known collectors from other countries are sending exhibits for the International Section, with collections on the subject "The Holy Land and Levant" as well as Judaica.

The Exhibition is under the patronage of the Minister of Communications and the Mayor of Jerusalem. It is being organised by the Jerusalem Philatelic Society under the auspices of the Israel Philatelic Federation and in close co-operation with the Postal Authority, Philatelic Service.

The Jerusalem Philatelic Society is also celebrating a special anniversary this year - its 50th - and can look back with pride at having successfully organised other exhibitions in Jerusalem in honour of earlier anniversaries of the State, such as "TABIRA" (1968) "TABIR" (1978) as well as the international one "JERUSALEM 73".

There are to be more than thirty dealers' booths where interesting philatelic material will be offered to collectors. The Postal Authority, Philatelic Service will be represented prominently by a special exhibit. During "INDEPENDENCE 40" a number of philatelic events and conventions are to take place in Jerusalem.

As is customary, each day of the Exhibition will be dedicated to a particular subject for which suitable special cancellation will be prepared; sample impressions of the cancellations are shown in the leaflet. The Exhibition is financed by the Israel Postal Authority.

The subject of the Souvenir Sheet and Stamp to be issued in honour of "INDEPENDENCE 40" is 'Buildings in modern Jerusalem". They depict the Jewish Agency Complex, the Generali Building, the Israel Museum, the YMCA, the Hebrew University Synagogue at Givat Ram, the Jerusalem Theatre, the new project at Gilo and the house of Dr Bunhem in Rehavia quarter of Jerusalem. Some of the buildings have been depicted on earlier Israel stamps.
