British Friends of Merchavim was set up in 2011 by Errol Rudnick, Robert Swerling, and Daniel Lewin (former Trustees), to raise funds for Merchavim and promote its objectives.
In Aug. 2018 the British Friends’ leadership transitioned and new Trustees were appointed. The new Trustees are Steven Kaye, Brian Markeson and Mike Prashker.
Specifically, its mandate is to:
o Financially support Merchavim.
o Educate people in the UK on the issues confronting Israeli society that Merchavim seeks to address.
o Raise awareness in the UK of Merchavim and its work.
o Generally, promote the aims and objectives of Merchavim.
Since its foundation, British Friends of Merchavim, under the leadership of Development Director Susan Coller, has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for Merchavim, and educated and informed many hundreds of British citizens, including parliamentarians, leading members of the business community, well-known philanthropists and key religious leaders, about Merchavim’s work.
