JNF Ambassadors

JNF Ambassadors:
Israel Education Monthly Webinars

The Israel Advocacy and Education Department of Jewish National Fund has as its mission to engage, educate, and energize the Jewish community of the United States to form a deeper commitment to both the land and people of Israel.  JNF Ambassadors is a program designed to engage teachers, school administrators and parent volunteers in learning more about Israel, and provide them with resources that they can use to teach about Israel in their classroom.  JNF educators will lead a series of webinars on a variety of topics related to teaching Israel in a timely and meaningful way.  Educators that participate in four or more calls throughout the year will receive a certificate of recognition as a JNF Israel Education Ambassador, and a tree will be planted in Israel in their honor.
