February 25, 2011 – Jewish National Fund (JNF) and jdeal, the premiere online daily deal discount site geared towards the Jewish customer, are excited to announce a new deal that will benefit Israel's Fire and Rescue Services in the wake of the December Carmel forest fire.

Beginning on February 24 until March 24, jdeal is offering a new month-long deal to raise funds for a new fire truck for the Israeli city of Arad. Seeking to raise $10,000, jdeal will donate $1 to JNFuture, JNF's young leadership arm, for every new customer who signs up to receive jdeal's great offers. jdeal will donate an additional $1,800 to JNF if they reach 5,000 Facebook fans or likes on their Facebook page,, through the JNF promotional deal.

JNF recently joined jdeal’s new affiliate program, launched in January as a way for non-profits, bloggers and media sites to leverage jdeal’s marketing and profit-sharing opportunities by placing a jdeal banner or widget on their website or e-newsletter. Through the program, jdeal gives 10% of proceeds from new user purchases back to JNF.

JNF and Friends of Israel Firefighters (FIF), a JNF partner organization, are undertaking the challenge of outfitting Israel’s dedicated firefighters with the state-of-the-art equipment, vehicles, and facilities they need to continue performing their job of protecting Israel’s citizens as the country’s first responders in emergency situations.

Purchasing much-needed trucks and equipment and replacing supplies that were depleted during the emergency is part of JNF’s Operation Carmel Renewal. A new Sa’ar fire truck, which is equipped for all types of emergencies, will significantly improve their ability to provide fire and rescue services to the city of Arad and surrounding areas.

“The recent Carmel forest fire highlighted the necessity of upgrading Israel’s firefighting equipment to be able to better handle these emergency situations,” said Amanda Levine, JNF Product Manager. “Our partnership with jdeal in the affiliate program enables JNF to reach a new target audience and raise awareness about this important campaign.”
