Hello friends and family!
I am so excited to share with you that I will be going on the Alexander Muss High School in Israel mini-mester in January. This is an 8 week program where I will be taking my general studies classes, but also have the opportunity to go on various trips and experiences while living in Israel. This program is something that has intrigued me for a while now, and I am looking forward to the adventures ahead of me.
I was also honored to receive a Philadelphia Impact Fellowship, which means that the Jewish National Fund is helping to cover the costs of my trip. As part of this program, I am now an ambassador for the work of the JNF and have been asked to participate in Plant Your Way to Israel. This program raises funds to support Jewish National Fund's critical forestry efforts while at the same time raising funds for my own visit to Israel!
The program is simple: Half of all the funds I raise will be put in a special account for my trip, and the other half will go towards JNF’s green initiatives in Israel. I’m raising funds to specifically support JNF’s forestry work – work that has helped Israel enter the 21st century with a net gain in its number of trees. But their work is not done and I hope I can count on your support.
It would mean so much to me if you would consider supporting my trip to Israel and the work of the JNF. Any amount is wonderful, I am so appreciative!
