JNF Executive Director
Don Schlesinger

The Israel Committee is co-sponsor the speaker for the November 1 dinner at Congregation Beth Ami. We are so pleased that the Adult Education Committee has invited Don Schlesinger, Executive Director of the Jewish National Fund to share with us how JNF works for us.

One activity JNF does is plant trees and Don’s talk will be the kickoff for the planting in Israel of a Sonoma County Tree Grove.  Call 707 360 3000 to plant your trees.  They are just $18 each.

JNF also builds communities, especially in the north and south. They work with water management, and they support those with special needs.  They do all this for both Arabs and Jews. 

JNF also is strong in building Jewish identity.  In particular, they provide a life-changing experience for high school students to study in Israel for 6 or 8 weeks. 

The talk begins at 7:30. We hope that you can attend a brief service at 6:00 and dinner at 6:30. If you wish to have dinner, you must make reservations.  Call the Beth Ami office at 360-3000 for details.
