The continued support of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is accomplished through a myriad of innovative initiatives.
More than simply a fundraising organization, CFHU seeks to bring value to its donors in exciting and relevant ways that not only generate donations, but that also enrich the lives of students, faculty, and visitors to the university. These initiatives are constantly evolving through the collective input of our donors and the university itself.
Albert 100 Visions
It’s been over 100 years since Albert Einstein published his special theory of relativity.

THE EINSTEIN ARCHIVE AND VISITOR CENTRE
The first and only institution to celebrate the life, history, and vision of Albert Einstein. Built around the unique collection of The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where Einstein bequeathed his entire personal archive, the archive will be a global attraction dedicated to science and humanitarian ideals.
