The Fondation du Judaisme France 
​(translated in English as" the French Judaism Foundation") created in 1974 occupies a singular place in the landscape of the foundations and in the Jewish institutions. It is the third foundation in the hexagon after the Foundation de France and the Institut de France. It is also one of the few French foundations invested in a broad spectrum of activities, in which culture plays a special role.

Fondation du Judaisme is a recognized institution of public utility, which counts among its board two state representatives. It is particularly attentive to the evolution of French society and harmony between its components.

​Under the Presidency of Ariel Goldmann and its Director Patrick Chasques, the Fondation du Judaisme Francais has more than
70 Foundations under their umbrella.

The Fondation contributes to a better transmission and knowledge of Jewish thought from yesterday and today, especially among young adults.
