In response to the recent uprising in Israel about the lack of affordable housing, Julie Sandorf, the President of the Charles H. Revson Foundation and Jerilyn Perine have co-authored an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post this week about the lessons that Israel could learn from New Yorks approach to affordable housing.

The Charles H. Revson Foundation is committed to funding Jewish philanthropy, and is supporting the work of the New Israel Fund a group of housing practitioners investigating the potential application of US nonprofit community-housing institutions to the development of affordable housing in Israel. Last year, CHPC helped to organize a study trip for the group around New York City for them to gain further understanding of the nuances of New York Citys affordable housing industry.
