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.
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.

Celebrating cultural difference and the vast contribution of migrants in Britain more widely, our schools programme promotes tolerance and celebrates diversity, with the museum welcoming around 20,000 school children annually.
