The Yahel Leon Recanati Foundation is committed to narrowing educational, welfare, health and cultural gaps in Israeli society. The Foundation continues a tradition of giving that extends back to the beginning of the 20th century.

Today's Yahel Leon Recanati Foundation still reflects the core values of the Recanati family, whose history of giving started with a commitment to the community of Salonika, Greece - long before their arrival in Palestine in 1935.
