About us

The People behind the Patriarchs and Matriarchs

We are passionate activists who help you—the concerned, pro-Israel supporter, promote a strong Jewish presence in the holy city of Hebron.

The Hebron Fund

Proudly continuing tradition in the 21st century

The Hebron Fund is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was founded in 1979, fifty years after the infamous Hebron massacre. 

Since ancestral times, Hebron has belonged to the Jewish people. The ancient city contains walls owned by our forefathers that are 4,500 old.

Yet, for over 700 years (1267-1967), Ma’arat Hamachpela was closed off to the Jewish people. Visiting pilgrims and the local community could only walk as far as the seventh step

One step further and the person was beaten by a club-wielding Arab guard.

After the Six-day war (1967), the Tomb of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs once again opened to the Jewish people. Dedicated American Jews then founded the Hebron Fund, a nonprofit American-based organization, to support and maintain the community. For centuries, Jewish communities have raised funds to provide for the community living in the sacred city. We are proud to continue this tradition.

What we do

Sustain Jewish Hebron

Together with our supporters, we improve daily life for the residents and soldiers of Hebron. 

Support Jewish presence We provide financial support to the families who represent us daily in Hebron. We encourage our brave soldiers by providing them with care packages and additional gear. So that Jewish presence is alive and well in Hebron.

Create a vibrant, wholesome city. We fund playgrounds, recreation centers, after-school programs, libraries, and summer youth activities. We sponsor public cultural and educational events in Hebron. So that the valiant families in Hebron have the infrastructure to live a normal life.

Maintain our institutions. We keep the front of the Tomb of Machpela beautiful and accessible. We plant gardens, place benches and develop historical, holy sites around the community. So that our sacred spaces stay open and functional to all.

Educate your community. We run tours and write articles weaving Hebron’s rich, historical Jewish past with present-day experiences. We combat BDS and stand up for Isreal and Judea-Samaria. So that you can take a stand and show the truth.
