In 1901, at the Fifth World Zionist Congress in Basel, Theodor Herzl founded the Jewish National Fund (JNF) in order to create and build a future Jewish State.

The  Virtual Gala will be held on October 5th at 8pm.

Ron Dermer, one of the Jewish State’s longest-serving representatives in Washington, was a key player in the US-Israel relationship from 2013 until this year.

Noa Tishby’s book “Israel: A simple guide to the most misunderstood country on Earth” was published a month before the May Gaza Conflict, amid an explosion of anti-Israel propaganda and her media interviews went viral around the world.

Commenting on the Virtual Gala, JNF CEO Dan Springer said that “our audience will be enlightened by Dermer׳s back-stories of key foreign policy developments and inspired by Tishby’s account of how she became a leading global campaigner in defence of Israel. We were overwhelmed by the national response to last year’s event and hope that the 2021 Virtual Gala will again serve to uplift and unite our community, in support of our shared Zionist mission and Jewish values.”

The theme of the evening will be “Building Israel since 1901”, celebrating all that has been achieved in fulfilment of Herzl’s vision, while turning to JNF’s future vision for the Negev and support of the pioneering new border community of Ramat Herzl.
