The Sapphire Society is the women's major gift division of JNF. Sapphires share a special bond through their commitment to Zionism, and are part of an exclusive group of leaders helping to strengthen the homeland - one community, one project, one family at a time. The Sapphire Society has raised over $20 million in ten years for a wide variety of projects in Israel. Members, through their annual minimum $5,000 contribution, are entitled to wear the coveted Sapphire Society Pin.
Green Horizons focuses on helping Israeli youth acquire self-confidence, independence, curiosity and a better understanding of their surroundings. The JNF funded program takes participants on trips around Israel with the goal of fostering interpersonal relationships, leadership skills and a strong connection to the land of Israel. Over the past 37 years, Green Horizons has educated more than 20,000 young Israelis. Alumni include top-ranking Israel Defense Force officials, political figures, and some of the country’s most successful executives and professionals.
