The Hirsch Foundation was established by Hedy Hirsch in memory of her family members who perished alongside six million Jews in the Holocaust.
The Foundation’s objectives are deepening Jewish identity and enriching educational content for elementary, high school and college students, and teachers, educators, school principals, and academics around the world. The Hirsch Foundation designates an annual budget for all its formal and informal educational projects, and engages in preparing content for books, publishing books, and providing this content to learners in a variety of languages.
The Foundation trains teachers, supports educational faculties, and designs and adapts educational programs per request. They also works closely with the My Israel Books website, subsidizing Jewish Studies and Hebrew language book shipments to Jewish schools around the world.
