My Dream Israel: Teen Travel Initiative

Hi! I am excited to be participating in the Dream Israel Teen Initiative and raising funds for important projects in Israel. Jewish National Fund is supporting Israel and Israelis in a number of different ways. The money that participating teens are raising will go towards funding several important initiatives. I am proud to support environmental studies programs for students at premier centers in Israel, including the Center for Creative Ecology at Kibbutz Lotan.

When my family and I went to Israel in 2019, we visited Lotan and learned about all their great work pioneering environmental change and eco-tourism. We met some really cool people who are very connected to Judaism and the world around them. They taught us how to make bricks out of mud and straw and explained how their composting toilets work. Lotan is dedicated to making sure our environment stays healthy for years to come. I am really excited that I have the opportunity to bring more attention to such an amazing place.

If I meet my fundraising goal, JNF will provide me with a grant toward my own Israel travel experience, the URJ Heller High semester abroad program, which I will begin in January. Thank you for considering supporting this important initiative and my efforts to meet my fundraising goal.

B'ahava (with love), Annabel

Building blocks of a better environment!

They do call it "Creative Ecology" :)
