(Calgary) – This year’s JNF Calgary Negev Event on May 9 at Temple B’nai Tikvah was a bit different, but everything is different this year isn’t it?

In raising funds to rebuild Kibbutz Kissufim – damaged on October 7, JNF Calgary hosted a simplified event in order to ensure as many dollars as possible went to the project. We heard from Zohar Ben-Ari and Alexis Haas from the Kibbutz, and saw photos and videos they took on the day of the attack, with narration by Alexis that gave the videos shocking context. Our featured guest, Emmy Award-winning actor, media commentator and activist Yuval David, was energizing and inspiring. His clear message was to wake up, stand up, and be actively proud of being Jewish at this difficult time.

JNF Calgary thanks all the donors to this campaign, and appreciates the leadership of Terry and Kim Libin and the JNF Calgary Board of Directors. Together, we’re helping re-build Israel!
