Paul Lowinger, JNF NSW’s Blue Box Chairman says his territory extends from Sydney to Manhattan plus NSW regional centres.

Paul Lowinger clears George Klas’ Blue Box and JNF’s Salome Woods looks on.

When not collecting in Sydney Paul clears the box of his cousin George Klas, who lives in New York.

Paul Lowinger told J-Wire:  “The NSW Jewish community has been very supportive. Last year we raised $1 million in our Pesach and Rosh Hashonna campaigns.

“That places us among the top per capita contributors to JNF  worldwide,” adds Salome Woods, a Blue Box co-cordinator for over 30 years.”

“And a few New York bucks don’t hurt,”  quips George Klas while on a family visit to Sydney.

Paul and George were raised by their mums in England during the Blitz while their fathers fought on the European front.

After the war, both families emigrated to Australia, where they started a life long contribution to the JNF, a tradition they passed on to their children.

Since those days the Fund has moved beyond just planting trees in Israel. Today its efforts support a myriad of cool project in the Holy Land and Australia.

JNF Australia funds have produced countless projects including a gazelle sanctuary in downtown Jerusalem and the Anzac Memorial in Beersheva.

Here they helped to restore the natural habitat of wildlife made homeless during the Bush fires.

In addition, JNF sponsors guided trips to Israel to highlight its works and many other cultural events. For a schedule of trips see www. jnf.org.au
