I am excited to be participating in Plant Your Way to Israel, raising funds to support Jewish National Fund’s critical forestry efforts while at the same time raising funds for my own study abroad trip to Israel! I have been looking forward to experiencing Israeli culture in a way that could only be done in a long period of time, and it is my privilege to be able to fundraise for my trip and also such a wonderful cause.
The program is simple: Half of all the funds I raise will be put in a special account for my trip to Israel, 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.
I will hopefully be attending the Alexander Muss High School in Israel in the Spring of 2019! This international study abroad program allows high schoolers from all over North America, Europe, and Australia to learn about Israeli culture and be entirely immersed in it. Judaism has always been such a large part of my identity, and going on this trip will not only allow me to gain a broader understanding about the Jewish Religion but also about who I am as a Jew in today's society.
Please help me reach my fundraising goal for my Plant Your Way to Israel experience – make your tax-deductible donation today!
Thank you so much to each and every one of you, every donation helps!
