2002 Misgav Am Security Road

Misgav Am is located high in the eastern Upper Galilee surrounded by beautiful scenery. The existing road became a security risk after the IDF withdrew from Lebanon as it was visible from Lebanese territory. The new road runs east of the Kibbutz Misgav Am and is hidden from view thus ensuring secure travel for the Kibbutz residents. The residents of Misgav Am travel the road daily on their way to work as do the children on their way to school. The region's many visitors also make extensive use of the road on their way to stay overnight at Misgav Am's country-style accommodations.

Plans are underway for railway systems and a massive water environment and economic development project. Trees still matter. Throughout the Negev areas are being re-developed by planting saplings.

2006 Sending Kids with Cancer to JNF Camps.

This project allows for children who are ill with cancer to be involved in an outdoor program, to play, to learn and to enjoy in the sunshine. The children are involved in activities at JNF sites around Israel. There are two special programs: An Outdoor Experience-a full day in the forest with sports acitivities, creative activities, hiking and cookouts in one of JNF Field Centres including meals and snacks. The Overnight Adventure-the activities are very similar to the day experience but the children also enjoy an overnight adventure in the air-conditioned and heated cabins at specific JNF Field Centres, of course, including meals and snacks.

The Program is open to all children suffering from this terrible disease, it also has a very special impact on those families who may not have the means to provide their ill children with a bit of extra reprieve from tough days of coping with the illness and ongoing treatment.

Kibbutz HaHotrim, located on the northern Carmel Coast was founded in 1942 and today has 600 inhabitants. In the year 2000, the kibbutz economy collapsed and as a result, the community underwent radical changes in this socio-economic structure. The newly elected committee for the kibbutz is trying to improve the social, economic and community life. To help the residents meet their goals, JNF has developed a sports field at the Yafit Park complex at the kibbutz. The kibbutz residents can now enjoy games of football, volleyball and basketball. The surrounding area will provide a green shady place for the residents to spend their free time outdoors. Up to now, the kibbutz had no such site and it will markedly contribute to the residents’ quality of life. Development of the sports field includes earthworks, paving, painting, perimeter fencing and lighting.
