Jewish National Fund Women for Israel is a dynamic group of female philanthropists who share a passion for building a prosperous future for the land and people of Israel. Through this society, women connect with each other on many levels—professional, emotional and ideological—with the common goal of changing lives in Israel and supporting the ongoing development of the Jewish homeland. As mothers, daughters, aunts, and friends, JNF’s work touches the hearts of JNF’s Women and inspires them to give in many ways.

Sapphire Society members receive a beautiful 14-karat gold pin with a Sapphire. For every annual gift of $5,000, a diamond will be added to the pin, up to 18 diamonds.
