Stamp: The Ben Gurion Heritage Institute
The stamp issued August 2004, sets Ben Gurion's portrait against the white, streamlined frame of the "Ben Gurion Heritage Institute" blending into the arid Negev background. Ben Gurion's kibbutz-home is shown on the tab. Construction of the Ben Gurion Heritage Institute was authorised by the Knesset in 1976, for "the commemoration of Ben Gurion's work and perpetuation of his legacy in the coming generations." The Institute also serves as a research and educational center in the Negev, located adjacent to Kibbutz Sede Boker, Ben Gurion's desert home.
The stamp with an information sheet are enclosed in a plastic protection sheet
