Jewish National Fund

Welcome to Adam's Bar Mitzvah Project Page

I am excited to be raising funds for Jewish National Fund!

Jewish National Fund began as a dream in 1901 to reestablish a homeland in Israel for Jewish people everywhere.  In the years since, JNF has made the dream a reality by greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities for generations of Israelis to call home, bolstering Israel's water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.

I'm raising funds for my Bar Mitzvah project to help ensure that the important work of JNF continues to restore coral reefs. Instead of Bar Mitzvah gifts, please make a donation to support the JNF coral reef restoration project.

Coral Reef Restoration actively restores reefs, which support about 25% of all marine life and act as natural breakwaters, minimizing impacts from cyclones, hurricanes, and typhoons, and form the basis for tourism and fishing industries. Over the past 20-30 years, coral reefs throughout the world have been degrading at an alarming rate. The National Institute of Oceanography in Haifa built the first mid-water floating coral nursery in the world and are sharing the concept with other countries, including Thailand, Singapore, the Philippines, Jamaica, and Tanzania.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal for my Bar Mitzvah project!  

Thank you!
