Jewish National Fund Goes Virtual for 2020 National Conference

Jewish National Fund’s (JNF) 2020 National Conference will, for the first time, be held virtually. The announcement was made by the organization’s local board presidents across the country, including Greater Atlanta Board President Michael Levinson.

Slated for October 18 – 23, 2020, JNF’s Virtual National Conference will continue to serve as the organization’s premier planning and celebratory event. This year’s conference will again feature a substantive program with a focus on how JNF is impacting Israel’s present and future, all available from the comfort of the participants’ own homes. The Conference will include an inspiring Opening Event on Sunday evening, two 45 minute informative and lively sessions each day (Monday – Thursday), and an exciting Closing Event on Friday. The full program can be found on

“Jewish National Fund has proven once again to be responsive to the environment, and creative in fulfilling its mission. Today it is using technology to bind JNF donors as a national community and connect us to our Israel affiliates at work for the country’s future,” said Levinson. “Attendees of the 2020 Virtual National Conference will learn of JNF’s incredible accomplishments and hear about what’s in store around the corner for 2021.”

Featured topics and discussions will focus on how JNF is helping Israel shape itself as the food and culinary capital of the world; the tremendous strides JNF is making to support Israel’s role as a leader in global food, energy, and water security; a behind-the-scenes look at the world-wide impact of the training international students receive at the Arava International Center for Agriculture Training; and much more.

“I urge everyone to attend this fascinating conference,” said JNF Executive Director for Greater Atlanta Beth Gluck. She went on to explain: “There’s something for everyone, and it’s more accessible than ever before. There will be special opportunities for major donors to hear exclusive performances; an example is a performance by Israeli singer Bat Ella Birnbaum. Our Sapphire Society members will be wowed by our VIP reception with Sarah Idan, Miss Universe Iraq. There’s no greater feeling than being part of a large and active movement for Israel. JNF is making that happen!”

Sponsorship opportunities are available for the 2020 Virtual National Conference at levels from $500 – $25,000. “This is a significant time and a wonderful opportunity to show your support for Israel,” said Jewish National Fund Vice President, Communities and Regions, Kenneth Segel. “Those who sponsor the 2020 Virtual National Conference will get a two-for-one deal and receive recognition at the 2021 Conference in Israel as well. Our vital work in Israel continues despite the challenging times, and our vision for the future is bigger than ever.”
