Bnai Zion is proud to have a long history of supporting Israel Elwyn, an organization that serves more than 4,500 children and adults with disabilities living throughout Israel every day
In March 1947, Bnai Zion helped found Kfar Bnai Zion as a city for Holocaust Survivors just before the establishment of the State of Israel.
In 1941, the leaders of Bnai Zion helped found Magen David Adom in Israel, Israel’s equivalent of the American Red Cross, and donated 125 ambulances as well as millions of crucial medical supplies.
Bnai Zion’s commitment to Israel predates even the existence of the Jewish State itself: Since 1908, we’ve been hard at work making the miracle that is modern day Israel possible. From launching Magen David Adom, the Red Star of David, still the nation’s premiere provider of emergency medical services, to establishing Betzalel, its first—and still most prominent—fine arts academy, we’ve made a significant contribution to Israel’s growth. Today, Bnai Zion’s impact is still widely felt in virtually every realm of Israeli life and society, from a 24/7 emergency assistance center that delivers medicine, food, and other essentials to Holocaust survivors and elderly Israelis to the Bnai Zion Medical Center in Haifa, a leader in emergency preparedness medicine and provider of critical healthcare services for Arabs and Jews residing in Northern Israel.
Accelerating Israel’s growth and perpetuating social impact and peaceful coexistence through partnerships and meaningful projects with our friends and allies around the world.
