In 1995 Hineni Jerusalem was established as a non-profit association by Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis and others as a Center for Jewish heritage. In the year 2000 a new management was appointed under the chair of Benjamin Philip. The Rebbetzin although no longer involved in its daily management remained a strong supporter of Hineni Jerusalem as a sponsor until the year 2009.

Expanding the vision

Under the leadership of Benjamin Philip and an active membership committee, Hineni Jerusalem expanded its vision and developed as an organization focusing on social, humanitarian and physical help so that people get inspired to contribute to a world that has mutual respect, peace and justice.
