Wrapping Memory is an illustration project that seeks to commemorate the beauty of the land of the Gaza Envelope before the terrible disaster that occurred there on Saturday, October 7, 2023, with the aim of raising donations for area residents who were affected by the disaster. To date, the illustration project has raised over a million shekels, a donation to the residents of the surrounding area.

Voluntary participants in the project are lecturers, graduates and fourth-year students from the Department of Visual Communication, in cooperation with the Shoresh Foundation and the WIX company.
