Keren Malki, the Malki Foundation, a non-political, non-sectarian, not-for-profit organization, honors the tragically short life of a girl dedicated to bringing happiness and support into the lives of special-needs children

This site, and the work of Keren Malki (the Malki Foundation), are dedicated to the memory of

Malka Chana Roth Z"L 1985-2001

Legal structure and organization


Keren Malki was formally established as a Registered Amuta [a non-profit society - see legal definition] under Israeli law on 11th September 2001, a date later to become known by reference to events that occurred in New York and Washington later the same day.

Its formal name is: "Keren Malki - Lezichra shel Malka Chana Roth, Hashem Yikom Damah, Amuta Reshuma". In English: "The Malki Foundation - In Memory of Malka Chana Roth".  In Hebrew: קרן מלכי לזכרה של מלכי רוט הי"ד

For everyday purposes, we refer to it in Hebrew as Keren Malki, and in English as the Malki Foundation.

  • Dr. Karen Kirshenbaum

  • Rabbi Dr Aaron Adler

  • Dr. Jerry Lafair

Goals and policies

In all respects, we are committed to conservative management of the foundation's funds, and full compliance with all applicable laws and good practices.

The goals of the foundation, as stated on the certificate of registration, are: "Aid for disabled children who are cared for in their own homes" and "Support for families seeking to provide home-care for their disabled child".


Keren Malki operates from a modest office in south Jerusalem (phone +972-2-567-0602).

Keren Malki is supported by friends organizations in Australia, the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom.
