Jewish National Fund Go North: Western Galilee Now

Western Galilee Now, is a consortium of small business around the Galilee as well as social businesses and kibbutzim that turned to tourism as their source of income.

By helping these businesses grow through means of training and marketing, they employ more people which enables them to stay in the region and for some to move and live in the region.
The number 1 reason that stops people from moving to live in the Galilee is the lack of employment. Making sure there are more and more working places, is important part of the puzzle of the initiative of Go North.

Tourism is the backbone of the economy in the Western Galilee. 40% of the population depends on tourism as their source of employment. Once the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) started showing signs in Israel in March, Tourism was struck immediately! As with other industries in Israel, the spread of the coronavirus has badly battered tourism, maybe worse than any other industry - as it has all over the world.

By helping these businesses now, we enable them to bounce back to their working life and re-employ all their staff and employees that have been sent home in March and rebuild the economy in the region.
