The Posen Foundation embodies the vision of its founder, Felix Posen, who believes that a Jewish education is the right of every living Jew. Among its signature projects are the Ofakim teacher training program at Tel Aviv University, designed to teach Judaism as a culture and civilization to a pluralist Israeli society; the Posen Society of Fellows, an international group of emerging scholars and writers whose work makes the study of Judaism as Culture accessible to as many groups and communities as possible; and Tarbut, a platform for sharing the work of Israel’s teachers in parallel with the curriculum of Israel’s culture and heritage. The Foundation is also deeply committed to the understanding of historic and modern antisemitism, and has been the primary financial supporter of the Center for the Study of Antisemitism at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem since its inception in 1982.
