Board Member
Tenure Unconfirmed

The Jerusalem Foundation has been working on behalf of Jerusalem and its residents for more than 45 years. The Foundation’s early years were shaped by the city's need to develop, mostly by building a city, block by block, school by school, park by park. Without neglecting the development of physical infrastructure, and continuing to care for previously completed projects, its last two decades were marked not only by physical but also programmatic investment, from community empowerment projects, to creating cultural programming, to leveling the playing field between east and west Jerusalem, to coexistence programming. Four decades after its founding, it has left its imprint on about 4000 projects, many of which are some of the city's best known landmarks.
