New York, NY: April 7, 2015 – Shavuot is a time of celebration and spiritual renewal, and there is no better way to bring those feelings into your own life than a nine-day excursion across Israel. On May 27, 2015, Jewish National Fund (JNF) will offer active adults, ages 55 and over, the experience of a lifetime with the 4th annual Sunshine Tour, co-chaired by Tony and Emmy Award winning actor, musician, and singer Hal Linden.      

Participants will restore their spirits and souls while traveling across Israel, experiencing some of the best the country has to offer from the northern city of Haifa, through the Negev, and to the top of Masada.

JEWISH NATIONAL FUND (JNF) began in 1901 as a dream and vision to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere. Jews the world over collected coins in iconic JNF Blue Boxes, purchasing land and planting trees until ultimately, their dream of a Jewish homeland was a reality. JNF gives all generations of Jews a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land of Israel and its people.

JNF embodies both heart and action; our work is varied in scope but singular in benefit. We strive to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is 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.

JNF is a registered 501(c)(3) organization and United Nations NGO, which continuously earns top ratings from charity overseers.
