The British Friends of the Art Museums of Israel (BFAMI) is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to raise funds to support educational programmes run by the art museums of Israel. These programmes share the rich artistic culture and history of Israel alongside prominent international contemporary art, with future generations across all strata of society. We focus our fund-raising endeavours to support educational programmes targeted at more vulnerable social groups such as children from deprived backgrounds, terminally ill children in hospitals and new immigrants suffering from negative social stigma to name a few. Together with these we support programmes reaching the gifted and talented, as well as Israeli soldiers.

Today’s Jewish young people have the energy and enthusiasm to shape and change their world in innovative and exciting ways that simply weren’t possible in previous generations.
Since 1895 the JLGB has trained and developed tens of thousands of young people to reach their potential through active citizenship, within both the Jewish and wider community, empowering them to become future leaders.
Encouraging friendship through achievement, recognition and personal development programmes, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, the JLGB helps to prepare and enable young Jewish people to develop the essential life skills needed to help their transition from young person to adult life.
Young people represent the best possible investment in the future – help us to help them.
