CFHU facilitates academic and research partnerships between Canada and Israel, as well as establishes scholarships, supports research and cultivates student and faculty exchanges. Albert Einstein, Martin Buber, Chaim Weizmann and Sigmund Freud were among the university’s founders whose genius inspired a university without limits or borders. CFHU is dedicated to supporting Hebrew University in its efforts to remain one of the most innovative learning institutions in the world. Canadian philanthropist Allan Bronfman founded Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University in 1944. The organization’s goal was clear: promote awareness, leadership and financial support for The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, which is equally relevant today.
