Doesn't it make you sad? Every year, when we finish Sefer Bereishis, I feel like crying. There is nothing like being in the presence of our Fathers Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov and our Mothers Sarah, Rivka, Rachel and Leah.

Collectors have long recognized that Israel uses archaeology on stamps, coins and currency to advance its political and nationalist goals.
