About the FOZ Museum
The Friends of Zion (FOZ) Museum was opened in 2015 in the heart of Jerusalem with the help of thousands of supporters of Israel from all over the world. It presents a technologically advanced, interactive experience that tells the story of the dream of restoration of the Jewish people to their historic homeland and the brave non-Jews who assisted them in realization of that dream.
The Friends of Zion serves as a platform for fighting BDS and Anti-Semitism internationally. The Museum is a non-profit organization operating in Jerusalem and supported by friends from all over the world.
The Museum’s International Chairman of the Board is Former President Shimon Peres. The Museum’s Board of Trustees also includes Former Minister, Major General (Res.) Yossi Peled, the former Chief of Staff, Lt. Gen. (Res.) Dan Halutz, the former Minister, Professor Yaakov Neeman, Major General (Res.) Danny Yatom, and many others.

Supporting the Zionist Dream
“If you will it, it is no dream”. Wrote Theodore Herzl, the father of the modern Jewish state, dreaming of the day it might become a reality.
No words could more clearly apply to the recent opening of the Friends of Zion Museum in Jerusalem. For centuries, the Biblical prophecies of Jews returning to their homeland seemed like only a distant dream, yet a dream remembered year after year with Jews repeating the promise “next year in Jerusalem”.
Supporting this dream for a homeland throughout history have stood Christian Zionists who, courageously stood with, nurtured, and, in many cases, sacrificed their lives protecting the Jewish people.
Although there is an increasing awareness in Israel of the historic support of those non-Jewish Friends, many remain unaware of these Christian heroes such as Corrie Ten Boom whose father gave his life to save God’s Chosen People and those who helped establish the present-day state of Israel.
The Friends of Zion Museum exists to tell their story.
