JNFuture is the gateway for the next generation to Jewish National Fund (JNF), the oldest voice speaking on behalf of the environment and community development in Israel. JNFuture reaches out to individuals in their 20s and 30s through programming and events, missions to Israel and forums with young Jewish leaders to engage and increase support for JNF’s initiatives. Over the past century, JNF has planted over 240 million trees, built over 180 reservoirs and dams, developed over 250,000 acres of land, created more than 1,000 parks, provided the infrastructure for 1,000 communities and educated students around the world about Israel and the environment. Today, JNF is restoring northern Israel, and is putting its century of experience to work with Blueprint Negev, supporting Israel’s newest generation of pioneers in developing the Negev Desert, Israel’s last frontier.

We invite you to participate in JNFuture’s various leadership, volunteering and funding opportunities.

JNF Women’s Alliance, started in 2005, offers women the opportunity to interact with likeminded women who connect to the people of Israel on many levels professional, emotional or ideological and gives them the opportunity to share their passion with each other and their counterparts in Israel.

The Greater New York Women’s Alliance aims to involve women in the national work of the Jewish National Fund. By educating women about the vitality of JNF work in Israel, we hope to recruit donors who are passionate and dedicated to the JNF mission. The Women’s Alliance offers a variety of activities throughout the year including exclusive insider briefings on Israel, educational seminars, recreational and cultural activities, quarterly updates in our Together newsletter and on the JNF website, and a unique Queen of Sheba Women’s Mission to Israel.
