New York, NY: July 16, 2014 -- Jewish National Fund today announced that the L’Chaim Solidarity Mission is departing for Israel on July 27 to show support for residents there and to meet with leaders and government officials.

     “It is crucial that we show our support for and unity with the Israeli people,” said JNF CEO Russell F. Robinson.  “I hope all join with me and mission chairs Lauren Mescon, Melinda Wolf, Vivian Grossman and Vice Chair Rabbi Brian Glusman as we lead this important journey. Now more than ever, we must stand with Israel and her people.”

     The L’Chaim Solidarity Mission will allow participants to engage with residents of the Northern Negev who will share their personal stories and experiences, hear exclusive security updates and attend insider briefings with top Israeli officials, volunteer at JNF’s Indoor Recreation Center in Sderot, speak with Iron Dome IDF representatives for a unique look at this remarkable system, and help deliver much needed supplies to Israeli fire fighters and IDF soldiers and hear their stories of bravery and courage.

     No matter the conflict, Israel is open for business. At the present time, more than 100,000 foreign tourists are on holiday in Israel, enjoying the many attractions and activities the country has to offer. Along with the worldwide Jewish community, JNF stands with Israel, and will continue to show support by moving forward with its scheduled trips. Presently, the JNF-JDate Singles Mission to Israel which left the US July 13 and returns July 19, reports that all of its travelers are enjoying a wonderful experience while searching for love and a great vacation.

     Another annual mission made up of young professionals from across the US, the JNFuture Leadership Institute Mission, also departs for Israel July 27-31.  

     The L’Chaim Solidarity Mission is open to all and the special land-only portion is priced at $900.00. Flights are not included but may be arranged upon request. The single supplement price is offered at $400. For more information or to register, visit or contact René Reinhard at or at 212.879.9305 ext. 235.

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.
