Chaired by the Mayor of Tel Aviv-Yafo, the Tel Aviv-Yafo Foundation partners with donors from around the world to meet the evolving needs of the City of Tel Aviv. With the establishment of social service, educational, cultural and environmental projects, the Foundation cares for the needy, assists minority populations, encourages the talented and enriches the quality of life for Tel Avivians and all Israelis. By allowing donors to designate their funds, the Foundation ensures accountability, promotes collaboration between donor and recipient, and strengthens the bond between the Diaspora and Israel.
Café Europa is a weekly support group for Holocaust survivors living in Tel Aviv. The program offers this unique population a comfortable setting to meet one another and take part in social activities that combat lonliness. One of the regular attendees states, “for us it is like a medicine. We wait all week for Café Europa.”
