Attendees heard from keynote speaker, Shosh Mitzman, who shared how a coalition of communities in Israel called MAKOM are empowering and revitalizing towns and villages throughout the country’s Negev and Galilee regions with the support of Jewish National Fund-USA. The organization addresses social challenges ranging from housing and food security to literacy and immigration, and has supported many Ukrainian refugees who recently made aliyah (immigration to Israel).
“It was an honor and privilege to host Jewish National Fund-USA’s like-minded women who share a passion for Israel,” said Event Chair and hostess Maureen Shapiro. “I love the work we do and the friendships we make.”
Jewish National Fund-USA Women for Israel is a dynamic group of female philanthropists who dedicate their efforts to building a prosperous future for the land and people of Israel.
