Spotlight on Keren Kabiry

“Through Bnai Zion’s fundraising activities, the medical center has been able to accomplish many goals over the years, including building the west wing of the facility in the 80’s, creating the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and the Pediatric Surgery Department, purchasing advanced medical equipment, and so much more!”
— Keren Kabiry, Executive Director, Friends of Bnai Zion Medical Center

For the past 16 years, Keren Kabiry has been Executive Director of Friends of Bnai Zion Medical Center, overseeing all fundraising and development in Israel and abroad. Many of the hospital’s needs, including new units, renovation, and advanced medical equipment, are not met by governmental funding, so we raise substantial funds in Israel, the U.S., and Canada to fill these gaps. As part of this position, she also coordinates activities and communications with Bnai Zion Foundation, which is one of their major supporting organizations.
