As a result of this year’s grants, we will help to foster the hopes and aspirations of at risk youth, will create a special new program for deaf-blind Israelis to allow them to live more independent lives, will support women and children who are victims of abuse and will enhance parent and community programs for a bilingual school for Israeli Arabs and Jews. These are just a few of the grants made by the children and parents of Acharai.

In December 2011, an initial 36 families founded the Acharai Fund.  Our first year of collectively identifying, selecting and supporting programs affecting Jews in Israel kicked off in January 2012. We were delighted to fund four worthwhile organizations in our first year: Bet Elazraki Children’s Home, Carmei Ha’ir, Hope for Heroism and PeacePlayers International. In year two, we funded Larger Than Life, MEET, Yad LaKashish and Koret Israel Economic Development Fund. What will we fund in 2015?
