"A Nation's support of its arts is a matter of both national pride and cultural survival." – Theodore Bikel

The land of Israel is rich with history and cultural inspiration.  It is no wonder that Israel has some of the best museums and art schools in the world.  For a tiny country, Israel's cultural life is extremely vibrant, original and hugely diverse.

Here are a few of the institutions that CICF has proudly supported:


Israel Philharmonic Orchestra
Rubin Academy
Thelma Yellin High School of the Arts
Israel Conservatory of Music
Jerusalem Conservatory of Music

Israel produces generations of talented, fully motivated artists in numbers that are beyond proportional comparison to many other nations.  However, young artists need the opportunity to train, study, and improve their skills.  They are in need of support to assist them in realizing their potential.

Hagai Shaham – violin
Itamar Golan – piano
Guy Braunstein – violin
David Broza
