Jewish National Fund (JNF) invites you to the 2016 JNFuture Colorado Wine & Trees event in celebration of Tu B’Shvat. Tu B’Shvat, the New Year of Trees, is a Jewish festival of renewal, a celebration of nature, and a holiday of the environment. Join us on Wednesday, January 27 at 6:00 pm at Savoy at Curtis Park (2700 Arapahoe Street) for gourmet food and drinks, and to learn about how JNF contributes to mitigating the world’s water crisis with technology and processes developed in Israel.
“Tu B’Shvat is JNF’s holiday and we are so excited to share it with this wonderful group of JNFutures,” said Aaron Taylor, Event Chair. “We are looking forward to seeing new faces and old friends. There is so much to learn and experience about JNF’s work in Israel, and I invite you to bring your friends to spend the evening with us and help grow our JNFuture family!”
