The Ruderman Family Foundation is a private philanthropic foundation, established in Boston, Massachusetts, in 2002. The Foundation, managed by members of the Ruderman family, operates in both the United States and Israel, and has historically specialized in two main fields: inclusion of people with disabilities in society and strengthening the relationship between Israel and the American Jewish community.
The Ruderman Family Foundation considers American Jewry a strategic asset for the State of Israel and a significant partner in the prosperity of the Jewish People. While Jews in the United States hear and learn about Israel, most Israelis are unaware of the history and current challenges of American Jews. To change this reality, the Foundation works proactively to strengthen the relationship between Israel and the American Jewish community by helping to engage a broad spectrum of the Israeli population, and especially policymakers, to become knowledgeable of the contributions made by American Jews, since the establishment of the State, towards the realization of the Zionist dream.
The Foundation conducts unique programs aimed at engaging the two largest Jewish communities in the world. It has initiated programs in academia, brought delegations of opinion shapers to the United States and collaborated with research institutions and other organizations. The Foundation also provides Israelis with high-quality insight about this diverse Jewish community, to bring about in-depth familiarity with, and give them a broad understanding of, the needs, successes and challenges of American Jews.
