KKL-JNF pledges $54m to rehabilitate Gaza border communities ravaged in Oct. 7 attack

The Jerusalem-based KKL-JNF Jewish National Fund and the Jewish National Fund-USA announce a joint NIS 200 million ($54 million) fund to rehabilitate the Gaza border area ravaged by Hamas’s shock October 7 attack.

The project, unveiled at the annual JNF-USA conference in Denver, Colorado, appears to signal an end to a 15-year rift between the two organizations.

This saw the JNF-USA effectively split off from its mother organization in Jerusalem, create its own offices in the Israeli capital, and directly support projects run by KKL, as well as by other NGOs.
