Jewish National Fund - Plant Your Way to Israel

Plant Your Way

Gesher Jewish Day School 8th grade 2016

We are 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 our own visit to Israel scheduled for May 2016!  We love Israel and we have grown-up waiting with excitment to participate in the annual Gesher JDS 8th grade Israel Trip. This year's itinerary will include JNF impact site visits. 

The program is simple: Half of all the funds we raise will be put in a special account for our trip, and the other half will go towards JNF’s green initiatives in Israel (there is a special bond between JNFs efforts and our on campus Gesher Green program). We're 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 we hope we can count on your support. 

Jewish National Fund began as a dream in 1901 to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere.  In the years since, JNF has made the dream a reality by 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.

Please help us reach our fundraising goal for our Plant Your Way to Israel experience – make your tax-deductible donation today!

Thank you!
