JNF Supporter in Sarasota Wins Trip to Israel Through Tu BiShvat Raffle
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
JNF partnered with EL AL Airlines and the Carlton Hotel Tel Aviv for an exciting online raffle to win a trip of a lifetime. Participants were given the opportunity to enter the raffle by planting a tree through jnf.org between January 6 and January 16, 2014 at 11:59 pm EST, with the prize being two free round-trip tickets to Israel, courtesy of EL AL, and a free two-night stay at the Carlton Tel Aviv, breakfast included. Ten runners-up received a free JNF E-Z Tree account.
Mair received an email from JNF about the raffle and decided to take part in the celebration of Tu BiShvat. She loved the idea of getting a “2 for 1” deal on her tree purchase.
Mair has been to Israel several times before and is thrilled to have the opportunity to bring her partner Angela, who has never been. The couple plans to spend time in Tel Aviv and extend their trip to visit friends.
“Each year I am amazed at the increasing scope and creativity of JNF programs,” she said. “Without JNF we wouldn't have our homeland, and I'm thrilled to get the chance to visit Israel through my connection with JNF.” Tu BiShvat embodies the abiding dedication to ecology, environmentalism, and conservation that JNF has always championed. Over the years, Tu BiShvat has taken on the theme of planting trees in Israel, giving it a special connection to JNF.

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.
