New York, NY., March 7, 2022 — For the tenth straight year, Jewish National Fund-USA has been awarded a maximum four-star rating from the largest nonprofit ratings organization in the world, Charity Navigator. The result once again validates why Jewish National Fund-USA’s partners (donors) are proud to support the organization’s vision for Israel’s Negev and Galilee.
