September is shaping up to be a busy month for the Mountain States Region of Jewish National Fund (JNF). There are many exciting visitors and events taking place that will allow participants to gain a better understanding and knowledge of JNF.
Attendees will gain insight into JNF’s vision and how it provides a unique voice in building a prosperous and secure future for the land and people of Israel. JNF strives to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s citizens and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is “greening” the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks across Israel, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid agriculture techniques, ensuring that no citizen is left behind by making parks and public spaces inclusive for people with disabilities and special needs, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.
