Keren Hayesod

(Palestine Foundation Fund)
   The major fund-raising and financial institution of the World Zionist Organization that financed its activities in Palestine. The 1920 Zionist conference created the fund to finance immigration (see ALIYA) to Palestine and rural settlement there, and in March 1921, it was registered as a British company. In the subsequent years, it was the agency that funded the building of the Jewish state in Palestine and Israel. Its funds came from contributions, and it financed activities in the areas of immigration, absorption, settlement, water resource development, and economic investment. Keren Hayesod was incorporated as an Israeli company by a special act of the Knesset, the Keren Hayesod Law of 18 January 1956.
