Founded in July 1915 in Whitechapel, Ben Uri has proudly been at the forefront of Yiddish culture and British art for over 100 years. The museum is the oldest cultural institution in the community. Today it is universally acclaimed for its role in protecting, acquiring, educating, and celebrating the artistic achievements of European Jewish artists, and sharing their rich contribution with some 400,000 people a year from across the cultural divides.
The museum has no endowment and no guaranteed income and relies on its own efforts and your generosity and shared vision.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is an oasis of innovation that serves as a model for the world. Unique among Israeli universities, Ben-Gurion University (BGU) was established in 1969 as a vehicle for the social, economic and scientific transformation of the Negev.
Today BGU has succeeded beyond expectations, with five campuses, building an academic institution that is deeply rooted in the local community whilst achieving international recognition for its inspired scholarship and thought-leading research.
The University is however, far more than a collection of campuses, faculties and schools. BGU builds bridges and promotes peace between Israel and its neighbours through collaboration in science and research. It is a link between science and industry, Israel and the developing world.
BGU is a university with a conscience – where the highest academic and scientific standards are integrated with community outreach, and where the pioneering spirit of discovery flourishes, fulfilling the dream of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister, to make the desert bloom.
Since its inception, one of BGU’s primary goals has been to establish a more equitable society for the people of the Negev region, many of whom are underprivileged. In many ways, the Negev is still considered the “periphery” of Israel, and many of its residents are immigrants who arrived in Israel from the former Soviet Union, Ethiopia and other countries.

Created in 1991, the Israel Guide Dog Centre for the Blind was established to train and supply guide dogs to an increasing number of blind Israelis who were unable to obtain a dog from an English-speaking centre abroad. Hundreds of partnerships have now been created at our centre that is located not far from Rishon L’Zion at Beit Oved. Each partnership costs some 15,000 for the life long care of the guide dog, training and aftercare. A legacy or gift will help provide another pair of eyes to the growing number of blind persons who ‘look’ to us to help restore their independence and dignity.
