Transforming Philanthropy in Israel

By Gidi Grinstein

Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA), November 5, 2007

As part of JTA's series on "Reimagining Federated Philanthropy," the author argues that Jewish philanthropy in Israel needs a major overhaul or risks becoming marginalized. He looks at the challenges that mark the current Israeli philanthropic landscape as well as the opportunities for Jewish philanthropy to impact and lead the four rising sectors of Israeli society: the business class, philanthropists, local government and nonprofits. He hopes that Jewish philanthropy in Israel, if transformed, can continue to play a central role in Israeli society and become an engine of Israeli prosperity and excellence.
