Bar-Ilan Campaigns

Our campaigns are designed to raise awareness and support for projects we urgently need help with. 

Current Campaign

An Institute of Hope

UK Campaign for The Jonathan Sacks Institute

In 2024 Bar-Ilan plans to open The Jonathan Sacks Institute. Reaching over 400 students a year, this ground- breaking Institute will bring together students, researchers and academics from different faiths, backgrounds and countries to learn from, and be inspired by, the remarkable work of Rabbi Sacks zt”l.

At a time when Israel’s democracy is under threat, we need this Institute more than ever, giving us hope and inspiration to build a fairer, more inclusive Israel.

Bar-Ilan have made a financial commitment to this Institute but more still needs to be raised. We are appealing to UK communities for their support. Your gift will raise awareness of Rabbi Sacks in Israel, helping us ensure his ideas become as influential in the Jewish homeland as they are outside of it.

Leave a legacy

Make a difference… leave a legacy

Deciding to leave a legacy is a sensitive and personal decision and we recognise that each person’s wishes and circumstances are unique.

You may have a particular area of research or education you want to support or you may wish to direct your gift according to Bar-Ilan’s most pressing priorities.

You may also wish to make your gift as a specific amount of money or a specific asset, or as a proportion of, or the remainder of your estate once family and friends have been taken care of.


How to make a legacy gift to Bar-Ilan

Whatever your wishes and circumstances, if you are considering making a legacy gift to Bar-Ilan, we would be delighted to discuss it with you so that you can be confident that your gift will be managed effectively and directed in a way that is most meaningful to you. By making us aware of your intentions we can explore different options with you and help you to ensure that your gift is tax-efficient.

Sharing your legacy plans with us also helps us to thank and acknowledge your generosity during your lifetime. While we would love to discuss with you ways in which you can leave a gift to Bar-Ilan, we recommend that you always seek professional legal advice when making a will.
