Maalot Cultural Center:
Forging New Partnerships

April, 2011

Woldenberg School for Arts in Kiryat Shmona

New Maalot Cultural Center, made possible through the generosity of
The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Foundation

A hallmark of IEF is building partnerships that engage like-minded donors in common purpose—leveraging every donor dollar for maximum impact. The new Maalot Cultural Center is an outstanding example.

The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Foundation were at the heart of this partnership with Israeli philanthropists to build a cultural center in Northern Israel—bringing vitality to the entire region. The Rapoports have been IEF donors since 1996, funding a variety of projects to strengthen communities throughout Israel. The Maalot Performing Arts Center partnered the Rapoports with the IDB Group’s Discount Investment Corporation, Mifal Hapayis, the Jewish Agency, JFNA, Israel Ministry of Housing and Construction, and other notable organizations.

Dedicated in January, the Center is the largest auditorium and performing arts center in northern Israel and is among the leading cultural centers in Israel. It extends over 20,000 square feet, contains 500 seats and is surrounded by 3 acres of manicured gardens. IEF thanks The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Foundation for their continued commitment to build the land of Israel. Without their support, this extraordinary project would not have been possible.
