The Foundation’s record of contributions to the world of culture and recreation is a concrete expression of a wish to improve the quality of life for as many people as possible. The Foundation has contributed to both high-profile landmarks and to smaller, less publicized local projects throughout the country. The Charles Clore Park, stretching along the southern Tel Aviv coast to Jaffa, has been a popular and prominent Tel Aviv landmark for decades. The Park was upgraded recently with the Foundation’s support in honour of Tel Aviv’s centenary. Other major projects which have improved life for the community include the Clore Centre for Music and Dance at Kibbutz Kfar Blum in the Upper Galilee, the Sir Charles Clore Greenery Pavilion at the Council for a Beautiful Israel’s Centre for Environmental Studies in Tel Aviv, the Clore Community Centre in the Pe’er neighbourhood of Hadera (recently expanded), the Neve David Community Centre in Haifa, and preserving Israel’s heritage through restoration of the synagogue in Rosh Pina. The Foundation is also proud to have been involved in the establishment of The New Museum at Yad Vashem. Further projects supported over the past decade include:
- Support for orchestras, including youth orchestras.
- The preservation of Jewish film and Yiddish theatre.
- Support for UK-Israel relations.
- Introducing Israeli audiences to the best of British culture.
- Improvement of sports facilities in development towns.
- Support for environmental projects.
