Talk on Jewish National Fund slated for Nov. 1

Attendees will hear Marina Kirshenbaum, a New Jersey-based attorney, Israel advocate and member of JNF’s elite “Makor” Volunteer Corps, who will share the story of the JNF and its role in growing and sustaining Israel through community building, water planning and a host of other projects in addition to its signature tree-planting program.
