Friends of Batsheva
Batsheva enjoys the generosity and dedication of many friends, both domestically and globally. Our patrons donate their money, time and experience to ensure the company's continued exceptional work. Our supporters are an inseparable part of the Batsheva family; they are our partners both in spirit and deed.

 Friends of the Batsheva in Israel
More than 150 families support the company's current activities, as well as a wide variety of projects. These include new creations, caring for dancer physical and spiritual health, empowering cultural activity in rural areas, working towards ethnic co-existence, educating the next generation of dancers, and much more.
Young friends of Batsheva
In 2012, a new circle of friends was formed. Dubbed "The Young Friends of Batsheva", this group of supporters was started by Daphi Levi- Weiss, Sharon Podjrosky and Sigal Mordechai out of a desire to encourage the younger generation to support and partner with Batsheva's artistic processes. The group's members are invited to get to know the company through a variety of special events that include private performances, rehearsals, Gaga classes with Ohad Naharin, joining tours abroad and much more.
