To help move hundreds of thousands of people to the North and South, Jewish National Fund-USA works hand-in- hand with affiliate MAKOM, a coalition of communities focused on empowering and revitalizing their towns and villages in the Negev and Galilee. MAKOM Community Pioneers believe that by creating a society of people that initiate, engage, and involve themselves as local leaders, they enhance and strengthen the social fabric of Israel. MAKOM is the largest national organization in Israel that brings together individuals and groups from all sectors of society to share knowledge, collaborate on initiatives, create dialogue amongst diverse populations, and work together to promote society as a whole.
