NEW YORK, NY., September 30, 2021 — Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA) today announced that hundreds of international “passengers” have registered to attend the world’s most immersive virtual tour of Israel as part of the organization’s complimentary four-day national conference taking place October 10-14, 2021.

Featured in national travel publications including National Geographic, JNF-USA is unparalleled when it comes to offering Zionists, travel aficionados, and global explorers virtual vacations to Israel. The leading philanthropic organization for the land and people of Israel has sent more than 9,700 people on over 250 week-long tours of Israel via Zoom since May 2020, when it pivoted from in-person missions to online tours at the onset of the pandemic.

Jewish National Fund-USA now plans to transport hundreds of supporters from coast to coast by the “busload” virtually to examine sites off the beaten path in Israel from the comfort of their living rooms in its largest, most interactive virtual mission to date, and to learn more about the organization’s philanthropic investments.

“This is the perfect opportunity for individuals looking to escape the mundane and oftentimes lonely confinements and restrictions we are faced with during these trying times,” said Jewish National Fund-USA President, Dr. Sol Lizerbram. “Are you yearning to get back to Israel? Have you ever thought about exploring our Jewish homeland at some point during your lifetime? Have you already been there but are longing to go back? Then sign up for this ‘conference like no other and explore Israel in a way you’ve likely never seen or heard of before. All you need is a computer or mobile device, a good Wi-Fi connection, and one hour of ‘travel time’ each evening.”

The conference will kick off on Sunday, October 10, with an incredible lineup of keynote speakers including JNF-USA’s CEO, Russell F. Robinson, who will discuss the impact of Jewish National Fund-USA’s record-breaking fundraising year, which secured more than $100 million for critical environmental and nation-building projects in the Negev and Galilee, as well as Jewish National Fund-USA President, Dr. Sol Lizerbram; President of Israel Isaac Herzog, and Member of Knesset Shirley Pinto—the first deaf member of Israel’s parliament.

Attendees will then get to virtually explore the land of Israel and meet JNF-USA’s affiliates with the help of a licensed tour guide every evening from 7:00-8:00 pm ET through October 11-14.

“This is not just an event for individuals who love Israel. This is a fully immersive experience for anyone who enjoys traveling — no passport, jetlag, or financial obligations required,” said Jewish National Fund-USA Chairperson of the Board, Jeffrey Levine. “You want to learn more about the land and people of Israel and find new places to add to your post-pandemic travel bucket list? This is the organization to do it with. There is no other organization with more knowledge of this country or a larger footprint in the land of milk and honey.”

“Seats” on the virtual bus are limited and selling out quickly. Gather your family and friends and register for JNF-USA’s virtual national conference at jnf.org/nc to experience this once-in-a-lifetime virtual journey with the ones you love.
