Sunday, March 14, 2021
12:00 pm ET and 12:00 pm PT
Please join Jewish National Fund-USA as we celebrate you, our most impactful partners — our major donors, with an exclusive event: an inside look at the impact two Israeli leaders have had battling the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic in their communities, and the successful distribution of the vaccine to the residents in their cities. In this conversation, they will relate their continued connection with Jewish National Fund-USA and with you, our partners, throughout the past year.
This program is exclusive to Jewish National Fund-USA partners who have donated $5,000 or more to our 2021 annual campaign.
