Jewish National Fund

Welcome to Jacob's Mitzvah Page

Dear Friends and Family,

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 am raising money for the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies (https://arava.org). The Arava Institute is an organization founded in 1996 that is devoted to helping our environment. They have multiple centers across Israel that help educate people In Israel and throughout the Middle East on key subjects like solar power, water management and energy conservation. 

In the following summer, I plan to visit the Institute in person. Climate change is a serious threat to my generation, and is an issue that requires us all to pitch in.

Please consider donating to help ensure that the important work of JNF continues - and I hope I can count on your support.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal. 

Thank you, Jacob
