Through the generosity of the Wilf Family Foundation, The Jewish Agency for Israel’s Amigour subsidiary has announced the completion of a new social housing project. The building which sits in the heart of downtown Tel Aviv, will provide a home for hundreds of Israel’s needy Holocaust survivors, many of whom are in poverty.

Founded in 1972 as a nonprofit company, Amigour is Israel’s leading sheltered housing company and second largest public housing group. Their partners include the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, the West Palm Beach Federation and Keren Hayesod.

Mark Wilf, who currently serves as chair of JFNA’s Board of Trustees, helped launch JFNA’s Holocaust Survivor Initiative, raising millions of dollars through philanthropy and a government grant, to advance care for Holocaust survivors in the United States.
