The Spirit of Israel Brunch scheduled for May 3, 2020 has been postponed and will be rescheduled for a later date.

It was the mutual assessment of our lay leadership team that the spirit, intent and goals of our Spirit of Israel Brunch would not be achieved if some of you, our valued partners—were unable to attend due to legitimate concerns regarding COVID-19.


Please accept our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience this may have caused you. Although this is a challenging time for our community, we are here for you and you are here for us.


While our newsfeeds and newspapers are consumed with headlines about the current status of global health, together with you, Jewish National Fund-USA remains steadfast in our support for the people who rely on us most—families building new lives in Israel’s north and south, disabled youth and adults seeking respite and therapy, environmental conservation programs and a multitude of other important initiatives.


We will be in touch with you shortly once a new date has been confirmed.
