In 1920, Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal was founded to develop the infrastructure for a Jewish state and help the Jews return to their ancient homeland.
Since 1948, as the leading official fundraising organization for the State of Israel, Keren Hayesod has helped bring 3.5 million Jews to Israel.
For the first time in 2000 years, Israel is now home to the largest number of Jews in the world.
Aliyah is still a top national priority. Keren Hayesod helps bring Jews to Israel from locations where their lives are in danger. It assists in absorbing new immigrants and gives them the tools to integrate economically and socially.
Keren Hayesod-United Israel Appeal’s Friends of Israel Division connects Christians around the world who believe in the strategic importance of the State of Israel as the beginning of the fulfillment of the Divine prophecies. Based on our common Biblical heritage, we work hand-in-hand with our Jewish brothers and sisters and friends of Israel to support the efforts to bring the Chosen People back to the Promised Land.
