The Ilona Feher Foundation was established in 2003 as a nonprofit organization committed to nurturing the artistic development of exceptional young Israeli violinists. The foundation honors the late violin pedagogue Ilona Feher (1901-1988) whose guidance helped shape some of Israel's greatest violinists, notable Pinchas Zukerman, Shlomo Mintz, Shmuel Ashkenasi, Hagai Shaham and Ittai Shapira.

The foundation is set up to award promising young violinists grants which may be applied towards various performing opportunities, recordings, or instrument loans.

In addition, the foundation also provides opportunities for private lessons, master classes, and other intensive courses in Israel and abroad.

The foundation was founded by Hagai Shaham and Ittai Shapira.
