Marion’s Living Legacy: The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity & WIZO

In January 2021, The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity and WIZO had a virtual celebration of the life and work of Marion Wiesel on the occasion of her 90th birthday.

The Emil & Jetty Erster Fund, in memory of Marion’s parents, protects the legacy Marion built and worked so hard to preserve. The fund is dedicated to supporting the education of Ethiopian-Israeli immigrant families through the Beit Tzipora Centers and provides opportunities for them to participate, and advance, in Israeli society.

In 1986 Marion and Elie Wiesel, through the Elie Wiesel Foundation, created the Beit Tzipora Centers in Ashkelon and Kyriat Malachi. The centers are now managed by our trusted partners at WIZO (the Women’s International Zionist Organization) and provide educational services and enrichment programs to over 700 children annually. Since their founding, over 8,000 children ages 6-16 have participated in Beit Tzipora programs. We are grateful to Rabbi Shmuley Boteach for having brought our organizations together to provide educational opportunities in our beloved Israel.
