Disabilities & Special Needs

As part of its focus on improving quality of life in Israel, Jewish National Fund is dedicated to ensuring that no member of Israeli society is left behind. Through a variety of initiatives, JNF provides cutting-edge rehabilitative services, special education, and medical care for people with special needs and makes its forests, parks, picnic areas, playgrounds, nature trails, lookouts and recreational facilities inclusive for visitors of all ability levels. JNF’s Task Force on Disabilities serves as an umbrella and coordinating body to support these partnerships in an effort to enhance their strength, fiscal viability, and effectiveness.
