JEWISH NATIONAL FUND WOMEN FOR ISRAEL TO HOST “A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM” IN ORLANDO
November 12, 2013 — Orlando, FL—Jewish National Fund (JNF)’s Women for Israel (WFI) will host “A Night at the Museum” at Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College on November 20th at 7:00 PM. Director of the gallery, Ena Heller, will be the docent for the evening as WFI supporters are invited to view exhibit Auktion 392: Reclaiming the Galerie Stern, Düsseldorf.
Max Stern's Düsseldorf gallery exhibition addresses the issues of Nazi looted art and the on-going restitution efforts by the courts in America and Europe for works forcibly sold at the instruction of the Nazi regime. The exhibition is constructed in three phases that tell the intertwined stories of the Stern family and Max Stern's doomed struggle to save his art gallery and collection; the forced auction (including a reconstruction of the auction environment with more than fifty images of the sold lots); and finally the restitution of Nazi looted art, alongside current progress of the Max Stern art restitution project.
JNF’s Women for Israel Night at the Museum will take place on November 20th at 7:00 pm. The event will be held at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College, located at 1000 Holt Avenue, 2765 in Winter Park. RSVP is required to RSVPNorthFL@jnf.org or 800.211.1502. For more information about this event and other events taking place in the Orlando area, please contact Laura Abramson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800.211.1502.

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.
