I am excited to be a team leader as part of JNF’s Plant Your Way to Israel, raising funds for Jewish National Fund and allowing our group to achieve its goal for visiting Israel!
The program is simple: Half of all the funds I raise will be put in a special account for my trip, and the other half will go towards JNF’s green initiatives in Israel. I’m raising funds to specifically support JNF’s forestry work – work that has helped Israel enter the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees. But their work is not done and I hope I can count on your support.
JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people. JNF embodies both heart and action; its work is varied in scope but singular in benefit. The organization strives to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.
Through its Plant Your Way to Israel program, JNF not only supports critical environmental efforts in Israel, it has also given thousands of young people the opportunity to connect to the land and people of Israel by raising funds for their personal journey.
I’m raising funds to help ensure that the important work of JNF continues –and I hope I can count on your support. You can help simply by joining my team or supporting my fundraising efforts with a donation!
Whether you become a team member or support me with a donation, I thank you for generous support!
