About

Since 1944, the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science has enabled Americans to play a dramatic partnership role in keeping the Weizmann Institute at the forefront of modern science. Research funds, major buildings, professorial chairs, laboratories, endowed scholarships, and many other gifts testify to vigorous American commitment to the Institute and its graduate school.

The American Committee was founded by a group of visionaries inspired by the dreams of Dr. Chaim Weizmann, the eminent chemist and Zionist leader who later became the first President of the State of Israel and of the Institute that bears his name. Outstanding business, intellectual, and opinion leaders soon joined the Committee to participate in exciting projects of support. From modest beginnings in Boston and New York, the American Committee has grown into a prominent national organization with offices coast to coast.
