Dr Moshe Kantor leads many charitable organisations in the UK, Europe and beyond, motivated by his deep commitment to education and philanthropy. He inspires young people to support his mission to eradicate intolerance, xenophobia, racism and antisemitism and believes that by educating, cultivating and supporting the young generation, we are nurturing the leaders of the future.
Alongside his co-trustees the Lord Levy and Mrs Liubov Kantor, Dr Kantor has established two charitable organisations in the UK. These are the Kantor Charitable Foundation to oversee British-based projects and the Kantor Foundation, which manages international philanthropic activity including the support to Yad Vashem – the World Holocaust Remembrance Centre.
The Kantor Charitable Foundation
The causes that The Kantor Charitable Foundation supports in the UK include the Anna Freud Centre, the King Edward VII Hospital, the Royal Society of Medicine and the Royal Institution and the Royal Opera House.
The Kantor Foundation
The Kantor Foundation supports charities outside the UK and charitable projects of non-British NGOs. It invests heavily in European Jewish communities to enhance further education, religious and racial harmony, as well as various arts and musical causes including the lauded Colmar project – a unique classical music festival in 2018 and 2019 which brought together world-class symphonic music, choral works and chamber music. One of the Kantor Foundation’s most significant beneficiaries is Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel.
Novgorod Museum Complex - fresco restoration
Dr Viatcheslav Kantor has supported the Novgorod Museum Complex’s project and sponsored the installation of a TRACER spectrometer at the Museum’s centre for fresco restoration and conservation. Experts at the Museum Complex are surveying and preserving a fine collection of fragments of medieval frescoes from Novgorod’s cathedrals. New works are added to the collection each year as archaeological research and restoration operations bring additional frescoes to light. With the new spectrometer, researchers will be able to learn more about the local frescoes and other artefacts, significantly expanding the Centre’s scientific, research, and educational activity.
Geriatric rehabilitation centre in Novgorod
In 2019, Dr Moshe Kantor took the initiative to create a geriatric rehabilitation system in Novgorod region. The War Veterans Hospital in Veliky Novgorod opened the doors to its new, modern geriatric centre on 4 November 2020. The project aims to help seniors maintain their health, energy levels, and social connections using state-of-the-art medical rehabilitation technologies. In addition to the rehabilitation centre in Veliky Novgorod, primary care facilities were opened in three district seats (Staraya Russa, Borovichi, and Pestovo). Novgorod region’s geriatric rehabilitation centre will offer inpatient care, consultations, and diagnostic tests to approximately 19,000 senior patients each year.
