Who we are?
FOI Our Mission
For more than 2,000 years the people Israel dreamed about going back to the promise land.
93 years ago thanks to Keren Hayesod activates Jewish from the four corners of the world stated to return back to the promise land. And there were many - from the Islamic countries and Western countries, refugees from Europe and from the finally open gates of the Soviet Union, they all see Israel as their home. Zion was in the heart of every Jew all those years – and the dream to come back to the land that God promise to Abraham was finally alive.   

Since 1920, Keren Hayesod – United Israel Appeal (the Foundation Fund) has been at the forefront of Israel's growth and progress. Founded as the fundraising arm of the Zionist movement, its history has been inextricably intertwined with that of the State of Israel.
KH brought tens of thousands of Jews to Eretz Yisrael, helped absorb them, established over 900 urban and rural settlements while providing the newcomers with homes and jobs, and developed the economic, educational, and cultural framework for the state-on-the-way, along with industrial enterprises. With the return of the Jewish people (the ”gathering in of the exiles”) the Promised Land was rejuvenated.


Today, in partnership with the global Jewish community, and in close coordination with the Office of the Prime Minister of Israel and the Jewish Agency, Keren Hayesod, a non-profit corporation, continues to work to further the national priorities of the State of Israel and world Jewry.
We all continue to direct our prayers many times a day, every day to Jerusalem the eternal capital of Israel. In the moments of our greatest joy and our greatest pain, Jerusalem is in our hearts and in our minds. We invited you today to be a part of fulfilling the biblical prophecies. 

"these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.” Isaiah 56:7
