Lord Rothschild (Jacob) is best known to the public for his support of art and heritage institutions in England, among them the National Gallery and the National Trust.

In 2018, Lord Rothschild’s daughter, the Hon. Hannah Rothschild, assumed the role of Chair of Yad Hanadiv -a philanthropic foundation dedicated to creating resources for advancing Israel as a vibrant, democratic society, committed to Jewish values and equal opportunity for all its inhabitants.
