Our World Center in Jerusalem keeps us well connected to events and leaders in Israel. The World Center has contacts from the top echelons of the Knesset—essential for this work.
In fact, the World Center was instrumental in arranging missions to Israel for U.N. diplomats and members of European Parliament. The World Center also played a big role in organizing meetings for the Israeli leg of the Jewish and American-Hellenic delegation's tri-state trip.
Your support on Israel Independence Day means that the World Center can continue advocating for Israel at the highest levels of government; educating diplomats, politicians and members of civil society on the Jewish state; commemorating Yom Hashoah; and providing aid for victims of terror.

Assisting Israelis Who Are Victims Of Terror
The Edith “Pat” Wolfson Endowment was created in 2005 to provide financial assistance to children in Israel who have lost at least one of their parents. Since the program’s inception, World Center Director Alan Schneider has made it a priority to carefully consider, with lay input, who the recipient will be each year and personally deliver the check to the child’s guardian.
Recently, Schneider delivered a check to the wife and daughter of St. Sgt. Tuvia Yanai Weissman, who was murdered in February 2016 in a grocery store by Palestinian terrorists.
