A Tu Bi’Shevat update from JNF Edmonton

by JNF Edmonton President Erin Wright and Executive Director Jay Cairns

(AJNews) – JNF Edmonton would like to thank the Edmonton Jewish community for your steadfast support in these difficult times. This past year has proven to be one of the most challenging years our generation has faced, and the world will never be the same as a result.

In the interests of safety and compliance with provincial regulations, the JNF Edmonton office has transitioned to a phone message system. Messages will be returned within 24 hours and for more timely responses we encourage communication via email at edm@jnf.ca. Tree bank holders can submit orders via email, and we have an incredible new selection of tribute cards to choose from. Office visits are by appointment only.

We know that this year has been difficult for many individuals and businesses. If you are in a position to make a gift, we encourage you to contribute to the Annual Tu Bi ‘Shevat Campaign, your support would be deeply appreciated. Visit us online at jnf.ca/annual-campaign/ for online donations.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please leave a voicemail for Executive Director, Jay Cairns at the office: 780.481.7881 or email edm@jnf.ca.

Thank you in advance for helping us build a stronger, more inclusive, healthier, and more compassionate Israel. We could not do our important work without people like you. Wishing you and your families a healthy and happy 2021.

About the JNF Tu Bi’Shevat Campaign 

This year, the holiday of Tu Bi’Shevat falls on January 27 – International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In recognition of these coinciding themes, JNF has carefully selected projects with the intention of providing vital assistance to Holocaust survivors and honouring those who perished by revitalizing the Plugot Forest in their memory.

Please consider giving a gift in the name of a family member who perished or survived the Shoah. If able, we kindly ask you to think about supporting this campaign on a monthly basis to help as many Holocaust survivors as possible. Each gift over $100 will be entitled to receive a beautiful commemorative certificate. Or, you can let JNF decide the area of greatest need.

Thank you for your trust in JNF and Happy Tu Bi’Shevat.

Please give generously and let’s Build Israel Together!
