Join Jewish National Fund-USA for the highly anticipated return of our annual Breakfast at the home of the Atlanta Braves. Enjoy breakfast at the ballpark with fellow Israel-loving community members as we celebrate our Jewish homeland and learn how JNF-USA helps make the impossible possible for the land and people of Israel. We are excited to welcome guest speakers, former MLB players and local legends, Ron Blomberg and Art Shamsky, who will share how their Jewish values helped to fuel their success. Together we will celebrate the power that determination has to make dreams come true.
