Thank you for entrusting the Jewish Federation to facilitate your philanthropy through your Donor Advised Fund. As a stakeholder and grantmaker, we would like to invite you to join us for an inside view of the exciting work happening in the Negev region and beyond. We are curating two virtual missions to Israel that will feature conversations with leaders in Israel’s education, public health and non-profit realm, stories from local clients who are directly helped by these efforts, and behind-the-scenes project tours.
