New York, NY (August 4, 2016)—Jewish National Fund (JNF) is bringing the beaches of Tel Aviv to the Jersey Shore! On Saturday, August 20, 2016 at 9:00pm, join JNFuture for an evening of networking, dancing, delicious bites, and drinks at the second annual Margate Meets Tel Aviv. For its encore year, Margate Meets Tel Aviv will once again be held at Lucy the Elephant (9200 Atlantic Avenue) in Margate City, NJ and feature DJ Ohad from Tel Aviv.
“I couldn't be more excited about JNFuture’s second Margate Meets Tel Aviv event,” says Event Co-chair Danielle Hankin. “It was unbelievable last year and we had over 150 young professionals join us to support Israel at JNFutue’s first major event in the Philadelphia and South Jersey areas. I know this year will be an even bigger and better success than last!”
"Margate Meets Tel Aviv is such a good time and so different from any other event out there,” says Alexander Hankin, Philadelphia’s JNFuture Board President. “It’s a chance to support and celebrate Israel while dancing under the stars with other young professionals from our community."
