The Road to Jerusalem: 45 Years After the Reunification, May 15-22, 2012, is a once-in-a-lifetime mission, commemorating the important anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem. Exclusive to JNF will be VIP status at the State of Israel’s official Jerusalem Day ceremony at Ammunition Hill, the site of the turning point in the Six Day War and to a larger extent, the history of the State of Israel. High-level dignitaries including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Shimon Peres, and Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat will gather to commemorate the unforgettable and inspiring experience at the site of the pivotal heroic battle. The week-long mission will tour key battle sites in Jerusalem that shaped the course of the Six Day War, visit an IDF base for an exclusive tour with soldiers, and hear the stories of the brave men and women of Gush Etzion, who fought one of the deadliest battles during the War of Independence.

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.
