The Jerusalem Foundation supported construction of the Kraft Family Stadium, an American football facility, at the site of the former Edith & Paul Baerwald Football Ground & Garden, in Sacher Park in 2000.The facility--the only one of its kind in Israel--is administered by American Football in Israel, a not-for-profit organization that uses the field for its own flag football league, which in 2005 included 900 players, and rents it to little league baseball, soccer and rugby leagues. The Foundation supported renovation of the facility in 2005, including the installation of artificial turf to avoid the need for watering, reduce maintenance costs and extend the playing season. The project donor is owner of the American National Football League team, the New England Patriots.
