Welcome Jewish National Fund!

Special IJN section welcoming the JNF national conference, which will be held in Denver from October 25-28, 2013.

Welcome Jewish National Fund!

Welcome Jewish National Fund!

EVERY year, Jewish National Fund (JNF) holds its National Conference in a different city. This year, and for the first time ever, Denver will play host to the 500 attendees, speakers, teens and college students at the Grand Hyatt Denver.

Participants come from all over the country and even from abroad for this annual event.

“We’re thrilled to be coming to Denver this year,” said Yael Septee Kane, JNF’s chief leadership development officer and the professional in charge of the conference.

“As a national organization we appreciate the support from all of our donors, so every year we take this conference to a different city to say thank you and also to expand and deepen our donor base.

“The Denver community has been terrific to Israel and to JNF and we are excited to involve them even more during and following our conference.”

JNF’s Russell Robinson’s ‘new Israel’

JNF’s Russell Robinson’s ‘new Israel’

WELCOME JEWISH NATIONAL FUND

I IMAGINE myself sitting in on the job interview of Russell Robinson for the position of CEO of Jewish National Fund.

Quite simply, after his interview, the rest of the interviews are cancelled.

He’s that good.

In a world made cynical by hyperbole, Russell’s Robinson’s enthusiasm is . . . enthusiasm.

His love for Israel is . . . love.

It’s as if his words and his complexion were typecast for each other: The words tumble out in plans, dreams, visions and commitments, and his ruddy complexion says: The life juices flow to make them all come true.
