The Jerusalem Foundation's International Gathering 2013


Something is happening in our city.  Every year, our international gathering highlights some of the latest philanthropic efforts that impact Jerusalem and its residents. 


Join us this spring on a special visit to The Jerusalem International Press Club at Mishkenot Sha'ananim, which will become home to the hundreds of journalists stationed in and visiting Israel each year.


Come and see the newly upgraded Canada House, to be dedicated in honor of the commitment of the government and people of Canada to Jerusalem.  Canada House serves residents who live in the very heart of Jerusalem.


We will also have informative discussions about the ultra-Orthodox community in Jerusalem and about our work in east Jerusalem with the Arab sector. 


Mayor Nir Barkat will be joining us on a special tour of Jerusalem as well. 


The pinnacle will be the grand opening of Teddy Park located in Mitchell Park part of the Jerusalem Walls National Park.  The park honors the memory of Jerusalem's legendary Mayor and the founder of the Jerusalem Foundation. Facing the walls of the Old City and in the center of Jerusalem, the park includes Israel's only sound and light water fountain and a Visitor's Center telling the story of Jerusalem's development under Teddy's leadership.


As is our tradition, we will honor some of the Jerusalem Foundation's dearest friends with the Teddy Kollek Award for Significant Contribution to Life in Jerusalem.  This year's Teddy Kollek Award is granted to The Hassenfeld Family (United States), Julia and Henry Koschitzky (Canada) and Sonja Dinner (DEAR Foundation, Switzerland).  Ruth Cheshin, president emeritus and co-founder of the Jerusalem Foundation will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award.
