The American Friends of The Yitzhak Rabin Center
Established in 1997, The American Friends of the Yitzhak Rabin Center is a registered 501©3 non-profit organization in the U.S. By Knesset decree, operational costs of the Yitzhak Rabin Center are in-part funded by the State of Israel; however, the construction of the Center and funding of its activities requires private financing.
