As a nation-building organization, JNF USA invests in the long-term sustainability and growth of the Land & People of Israel. The JNF Los Angele Real Estate community is coming together to make its mark with ‘Go North,’ JNF’s strategic initiative to bring 300,000 residents and jobs to the northern region of Israel from the crowded (and expensive) center of the country, creating a more viable and affordable homeland for the Jewish people in the process.
All gifts made through this page will be directed to the ‘Go North’ initiative. The JNF LA Real Estate Cabinet will decide at a later time -- based on input from donors like YOU -- which specific project to allocate the funds to. On site recognition will publicly display the generosity of the JNF Los Angeles Real Estate community.

HIGHLIGHTED 'GO NORTH' PROJECTS:
--Galilee Medical Center--
Conventional medical services in Northern Israel lag behind those in the center of the country, hindering people from building their lives in the region. Plans are underway to improve the quality of healthcare, with Jewish National Fund leading the effort to upgrade and improve urgent care and to provide a medical clinic that offers x-ray services, nursing, a pharmacy, and more, to significantly improve the viability of the region as a comfortable place to live and visit.
--Lauder Employment Center--
Modeled on the Lauder Employment Center in Southern Israel, Jewish National Fund will offer comprehensive career services, guidance, and resources to students and alumni of area universities, as well as to assist businesses throughout the Galilee to find qualified employees. By creating partnerships between Galilee employers, employment agencies, and potential employees, JNF will increase the number of people finding jobs, while improving employer and employee satisfaction.
--Galilee Culinary Institute--
The JNF Galilee Culinary Institute will bring the entire greater Kiryat Shmona region to life through food, agriculture, employment, education, and tourism. As the first-of-its-kind, accredited, multi-year cooking school in the Middle East, the academy aims to become a center of professional excellence not just in cooking, baking, food science, food technology, and agriculture, but also in restaurant and hospitality management, and the business of food security. The academy will employ local residents at the school, integrate students into the local community, increase the need for housing for students, visiting professors and staff, and generally enhance the vibrancy of the greater Kiryat Shmona region.
