Taking the Jewish concept of Ushpizin (visitors) to the next level, the Toczeks, two of Los Angeles’ most prominent philanthropists, invited the organization’s major donors ages 22-40 into their Sukkah for food, socializing, and a program showcasing how their investment in Jewish National Fund-USA is leading to a brighter, more prosperous future for the land and people of Israel.

Attendees also heard from incoming Los Angeles JNFuture President, Alice Sherman, who emphasized the importance of Jewish National Fund-USA’s game-changing initiatives. “What an honor to be president of JNFuture in Greater LA,” she said. “As a young professional and dedicated member of Women for Israel's Chai Society, I hope to inspire others to find their passion in our great causes too, such as bringing the world together through food and culture at our Galilee Culinary Institute by JNF in Israel’s north, or through education at our World Zionist Village in the south.”
