Peres invites public to tour his office

President launches new website offering rare, intimate peek into official residence

Want to be a fly on the wall at Shimon Peres' office? The President's Residence has launched an innovative website including, for the first time, a virtual tour offering the public a rare, intimate peek into the Israeli president's bureau.


The virtual tour will allow surfers to check out the pile of books on the president's desk, decorations received from the queen of England and the president's collection of menorahs.


The "tour", which was strictly coordinated with the Shin Bet security service, includes a visit to the house's lawn and serves as the highlight of the new website.


The website,, offers extensive information on the presidency and includes all of Peres' speeches. The president's fans will also be directed to his YouTube page, and upcoming features include an interactive website for children and live coverage.


Another innovation is the amnesty issue: Israeli citizens can now download amnesty forms through the new website, and will soon even be able to send them directly to the president.


According to the President's Residence, the website's goal is to give the public the opportunity to follow Peres' activity in real time.


"We are talking about an unstoppable president, and I think it's very obvious in this website," says Sharon Shefi of the President's Residence, who monitored the website's construction.
