Since 1985, the year of its foundation and now 35 years ago, the Foundation has drawn attention and support to the Palestinian minority of the citizens of Israel, about 20% of the population. In the Jubilee edition of June 2010 you can read all about the history of the Foundation. FRIENDS is the current name of the Contact Letter. Twice a year we draw attention to the other Israel. In 1989, a scholarship project was started aimed at the academic education of young Palestinian women in particular. In the FRIENDS, students talk about their studies and life.
