JNF's Work in Israel, Positively Israel
Lauren joined Jewish National Fund in 2006 as a board member in Atlanta, Georgia. In short order she became Co-President and in 2008 traveled to Israel for only the second time in her life with the Queen of Sheba Mission. While there she learned about Makor, the JNF’s speakers’ bureau and immediately asked to join.
JNF is in Lauren’s dna as her paternal grandmother lead the blue box campaign in Savannah, Georgia when she was a child.
Currently, Lauren chairs the Central Arava Task Force 2020, a group of committed volunteers who are focused on doubling the size of the Central Arava consistent with JNF’s Blueprint Negev and David Ben Gurion’s vision to make the desert bloom.
While not volunteering for JNF, Lauren is married to Tim Mescon, President of Columbus State University in Columbus GA. They have 4 children and a dog Buddy.
Formerly engaged in the active practice of law for 30 years, she now runs her own business as an Independent Consultant for Rodan + Fields Dermatologists.
