Both a national and global water crisis is upon us. Israel has been at the forefront of water solutions including desalination, drip irrigation, water purification and reuse, for several decades. Jewish National Fund has played a central role in Israel’s water achievements—and continues to do so. To share Israel’s technological advancements and accomplishments in water “technology" with the U.S., JNF invites you to its exclusive Washington D.C. - Israel Water Summit.
