The Israel Museum was established in Jerusalem in 1965. Its collections include archaeology of the Holy Land, Judaica and fine art ranging from European Old Masters to contemporary art.

In April 1968 Hendy was appointed by UNESCO as an expert advisor to the Israel Museum. On completion of this mission, Hendy was employed by the Israel Museum as Advisor and Chairman of the Executive Committee until 1972.

1. Executive Committee Papers;

2. Administrative correspondence;

3. Miscellaneous Material;

4. Photographs;

5. Masterplan for the extension of the Israel Museum
