Betsy Fischer is proud to support and be involved with Jewish National Fund. She followed in her husband Peter's footsteps onto the JNF Board of southern New Jersey, and is now the Social Media co-chair. She is also a member of Makor Speakers Bureau and the Women's Sapphire Society. She has spoken on behalf of Jewish National Fund in New Jersey, Maryland, Washington, DC and Pennsylvania. While Betsy appreciates the wide array of JNF projects in Israel, her true love (or "ISH" as she likes to call it,) is the indoor playground in Sderot. She has visited the playground on several occasions, and in 2011 hosted a huge dance/fitness party in the playground's disco for the families living so close to the border with Gaza. Betsy was recently asked to head the Sderot/Sha'ar haNegev Regional Council Task Force.
Dancing is Betsy's passion, and for the second year in a row she has lead the "JNF Summer Jam," a Women for Israel dance/fitness class held at the Jersey Shore. Betsy created this event which infuses JNF education into a dance class set to music from all around the world -- for example Latin, Israeli, and American music. It's an empowering and moving experience for everyone who participates. She is also the owner of Betsy Fischer's Groove Lounge, a dance party studio which hosts private parties for kids ages 4-94! Betsy recently won the title "DJ of the Year 2015" and "New Dance 2015" at the International DJ Expo.
Betsy and Peter are the proud parents of three amazing children, and are grateful knowing that they have raised three Zionists who have all supported and volunteered for JNF!
