The Elef Milim (“а thousand words” in Hebrew) project brings together Wikipedians for fun educational activity aiming at enriching the free image repository with pictures of sites, buildings and landscape in Israel. It is a series of field-trips to different sites in Israel, organized and guided by those Wikipedians who are experienced in tourist guiding, history and/or geography.

In Hebrew Elef Milim can be translated as “a thousand words” - a reference to the proverb a picture is worth a thousand words - or as “a thousand miles” - a reference to a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

The project's initiator is Rotem. The current Project Director is Deror Avi
