NEW YORK, N.Y., February 15, 2021 — On March 11, 2021, Jewish National Fund-USA’s (JNF-USA) Real Estate and Finance Divisions are teaming up with Faded Spade, one of the industry leaders in virtual poker, for a tournament that will combine high-stakes competition and networking. Industry professionals will come together to compete, live chat, and support the land and people of Israel.
