Jewish National Fund will host a JNFuture event featuring guest speaker Yedidya Harush.
As Jewish National Fund’s Halutza Liaison for Negev Community Development, Yedidya Harush works to cultivate an underdeveloped region in Israel’s southwestern corner into a thriving community. After completing high school in the U.S., Harush returned to Israel and assumed a key leadership role in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), helping evacuees of Gush Katif in Gaza lead a normal life while their families and homes were in distress. During Operation Protective Edge in 2014, when repeated rocket attacks struck Southern Israel, Harush and his reserve elite IDF unit worked to secure Halutza, the border, and protect the country.
JNFuture is the gateway for the next generation to Jewish National Fund (JNF). JNFuture engages and energizes young leaders who are committed to environmentalism and community development in Israel. JNFuture reaches out to individuals in their 20's and 30's through programming and events, trips to Israel.
