→ The challenge

Yad Hanadiv Foundation (YH) was formed in 1958 to address the needs of Israeli society, carrying forward a tradition of support for Jewish revival in Palestine initiated by Baron Edmond de Rothschild in the mid-1800s. Easily the biggest philanthropic fund in Israel, some of their initiatives include establishing the Centre for Educational Technology, building the Israeli Knesset and Supreme Court, and countless other projects of historical importance.

YH and Dofinity have a deep history. We were initially hired by YH in 2009 when we were tasked with creating its initial website—back when galleries were still trendy.

Fast-forward to late 2015, YH faced a challenge: how should the next generation of their website look and behave? It was a tough question to answer. YH leads with perfection and precision in its DNA, so every detail had to be top-notch. As an agency on the leading edge of digital technology and trends, we were up to the challenge.

Reinvent the digital experience: The new website needed to represent the organizationin a way that reflected YH’s legacy and impact.
Trilingual knowledge base: The website would offer a modern, user-friendly knowledge hub for people to learn more about YH’s philanthropic activities in Israel. It also had to support trilingual content.
Content-Heavy Workloads: Various types of content were needed to support an exceptional user experience, so high performance and scalability were prioritized.
Next-Gen Security: Stringent data security was at the forefront of our efforts, ensuring alignment with YH’s image and legacy.

→ The Solution

Performance: Once we understood the number of media assets we needed to incorporate, it was clear that a high-performance approach would be a critical factor for success. Drupal enabled us to quickly configure and fully control a responsive image style mechanism that ensured each image was loaded in the exact size needed to satisfy its specific context.

Security: From the outset, the organization’s IT mandated very clear and strict security standards. To us, this was easy. Meeting high-security standards requires an open-source foundation built from the ground up in Drupal with security at the forefront.

Flexibility: Perfection means getting it right 100% of the time—never less. From a purely technological point of view, the developers needed enough flexibility and freedom to achievethe desired outcome. Drupal is a killer OS foundation that allows us to build any digital experience you can imagine, not only at the very startof the project but also down the road.

→ Success

The outcome was a source of tremendous pride and satisfaction, both within and outside the organization. The new web presence truly fulfilled YH’s vision to digitally reflect the phenomenal DNA of an extraordinarily well-tuned and impactful philanthropic organization.
