Inaugural JNF Brunch Held in Monroe

Over 150 eager and excited individuals filled the room at the Towne Centre Clubhouse to show their support for Israel during Jewish National Fund’s first-ever Garden State Summer Brunch on July 17. The event brought in a substantial display of monetary support from the Monroe community. The overwhelming response from attendees is an indication of the tremendous work that JNF is doing, which resonates across the world, activating people to get involved in such a meaningful cause.

Rebecca Shimoni-Stoil, Washington correspondent for The Times of Israel and a PhD candidate at Johns Hopkins University, gave the keynote address at this year’s highly anticipated event. Her remarks focused on the US-Israel relationship and the future thereof.

“It’s so exciting to see the growth and popularity of JNF Breakfasts across New Jersey,” said Marcy Needle, Central New Jersey Board Member. “Talk about multi-tasking! Where else can you network, eat breakfast, learn about an issue that impacts Israel and see how JNF’s vision is translated into action throughout the country—all in an hour? Once you hear the JNF story, you’ll want to be a supporter too!”

Attendees of the breakfast got a glimpse into the vision of JNF and how it provides a unique voice in building a prosperous future for the land and people of Israel. JNF strives to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is “greening” the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks across Israel, 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.
