Founded in 1974, the Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute is Israel’s leading center for applied social research. The Institute identifies and examines key social challenges. We use our knowledge and research to help inform policy, advise programming, and improve services for individuals, families, and communities. We work to strengthen Israeli society and the wellbeing of all its members. MJB is an independent, non-profit partnership between the Joint Distribution Committee, the Government of Israel, and the David and Inez Myers Foundation of Cleveland. The Institute’s governance committee is composed of senior government officials from the ministries of Labor and Social Affairs, Education, Health, and Finance, and Israel’s National Insurance Institute, and major lay leaders in the Jewish world.
