“I created ‘Israel Forever’ to commemorate the spirit of the 60th anniversary of the State of Israel,” said Fazzino, who has a large following of Jewish collectors. “I tried to capture the special feeling and connection my Jewish collectors in the U.S. have for their Jewish nation -- that of awe and love. I am also very excited that my artwork can be used to help support JNF.”
Said Michael O'Mahoney, president of Wentworth Galleries: “Charles Fazzino's collectors throughout the U.S. will be thrilled to add ‘Israel Forever’ to their art collection. Wentworth Galleries is most honored to be in a position to support JNF and its important mission by donating a portion of the proceeds from sales of ‘Israel Forever.’”

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.
