Chloe Marton’s Batmitzvah
JNF Australia is supporting the development of Ramat Herzl, a pioneering new community near Israel’s border with Egypt.
Ramat Herzl will form part of an emerging education and technology hub in the Southern Negev. It is located near previous key JNF projects, such as the Nitzana Ecological Park and the Kadesh Barnea Environmental Centre. Once established, this hub will provide employment opportunities for the growing list of young families waiting to join the community and training programs for youth and young adults.
Following a successful model for growth, most recently seen in the young community of Sheizaf, JNF Australia will fund the construction of Ramat Herzl’s first neighbourhood. This will house the community’s first wave of families as they await construction of their permanent homes. The neighbourhood will then serve as an ongoing absorption centre for each new wave of residents.
Your valuable donation will establish new housing for 18 families. Funds raised by JNF Australia will attract matching government funding for community infrastructure and services, ensuring its continued growth.
