The Future Generation Fund started with arranging vocational training courses in the Jerusalem neighbourhoods of Neve Yaakov and Katamon.
However, one of first cases was a penniless, lonely boy named Eli who came alone on aliya, leaving his family in Morocco to follow him some years later. After serving in the Army, he aspired to become a teacher. Convinced of his worth, FGF financed his training with the help of the B’nai Brith First Lodge of England, which became the first regular contributor to the fund.
After an outstanding career, Eli was finally appointed Director of the Youth Department of in the City of Carmiel in the Galilee. The partnership became so successful that a recent estimate of the number of youngsters helped together is over 3,000.
The fund’s activity has subsequently expanded to Kiryat Yovel, Baka and Gilo in Jerusalem, and other localities such as Mazkeret Batya and Beit Shemesh.
