Resilience in the Face of Adversity:
Supporting the Western Negev

Extend a Lifeline to Those in Crisis

  • Amount raised
    $100
  • Campaign goal $0

On Saturday, October 7, 2023, chaos descended upon the tranquil towns and tight-knit communities of the Western Negev. In a harrowing assault orchestrated by Hamas terrorists from the Gaza Strip, Israel faced its darkest hour.

Six months later, as the war continues, the communities lie deserted, residents evacuated, with no clear timeline for their return. 

Here at KKL-JNF, we refuse to let terror triumph. We stand shoulder to shoulder with the resilient people of the Western Negev, committed to their long-term recovery and the rebuilding of shattered homes and lives. 

Join us in this vital mission.

Your support is not just a donation; it’s a lifeline to those who have lost everything. Together, we can turn devastation into determination and write a new chapter of resilience for the Western Negev.

KKL-JNF is a public-benefit company devoted to the sustainable development of Israel. It was established in 1901 at the 5th World Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, for the purpose of acquiring land for Jewish settlement in Eretz Yisrael (at that time Ottoman Empire). Embarking on what was possibly the world’s first global Jewish “crowdfunding” campaign, KKL-JNF went on to purchase and develop 2.6 million dunams (260,000 ha.) for Hebrew agriculture and community development. These efforts essentially laid the foundations for what would become the State of Israel.

Today, KKL-JNF is a national institution, with over 120 years of experience in nation building under its belt. It has chapters all around the country, and hundreds of employees and volunteers from all sectors of Israeli society. KKL-JNF also acts under government mandate as Israel’s Forest Service. In this capacity, it manages some 300,000 acres (120,000 ha) of planted forests, woodlands, and open spaces.

We draw on our strong working relationships with local and national authorities, developed over decades, to spearhead and implement game changing initiatives in KKL-JNF’s three main spheres of activity, as embodied by the 3 colors on our logo: Blue for water management and technologies; Green for forestry, ecology, and climate change mitigation; and Brown for the cultivation of the land and the people living upon it.

Three spheres, one overarching goal: developing Israel to be the best that it can be.

KKL-JNF’s impact is evident in the vibrant patchwork of blues, greens, and browns making up the modern Israeli landscape: the reservoirs and rehabilitated streams; the field centers and recreation areas nestled amidst verdant forests; the delicate filagree of cycling and hiking trails, the gleaming R&D centers and innovation incubators, the brightly colored club houses for youth, and so much more.

True to its origins as a builder of bridges between Israel and the wider world, KKL-JNF operates in more than 55 countries and works in cooperation with various governmental and non-governmental bodies to further common environmental interests, especially in connection to climate change.
