The Ruderman Family Foundation is extremely proud of our partnership with the University of Haifa in creating the first academic program focused on the American Jewish community at any Israeli university. We believe that the American Jewish community is the key strategic asset the State of Israel has in securing her future, yet American Jewry is in a period of transition. We believe that our future leaders in Israel must understand the nature and challenges facing American Jews if they are to continue to build a strong, vibrant relationship with the most important Jewish community in the Diaspora. The Ruderman Program in American Jewish Studies will help educate tomorrow’s Israeli leaders to better secure this relationship and Israel’s future.
