July 28, 2021 7:00 PM

A Cultural Journey into the Western Galilee

July 20, 2021 9:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Join Jewish National Fund-USA’s Go North West and Arts & Entertainment Task Forces for a virtual tour of the Western Galilee. Led by Michal Shiloah Galnoor, we will meet local artists, small business owners, and experience the sights and sounds of this magnificent region. Learn about our Western Galilee Tourist Information Center in Akko, which is the gateway to the entire area and instrumental in fostering co-existence between Arabs and Jews.

Tourism in the Western Galilee came to an abrupt halt, first with the COVID-19 pandemic and again during the recent conflict in Israel when the visitor center was vandalized not once, but twice. Together with our Arab neighbors we protected the center, but the damage was done. The building may have been damaged, but the hopes and dreams still live on.

Our friends and partners from around the world have shown solidarity with Surfside and the individuals and families reeling from the unimaginable tragedy

We are not alone. Over the past week, our friends and partners from around the world have shown solidarity with Surfside and the individuals and families reeling from the unimaginable tragedy.

Through words, deeds and generous donations, we have been strengthened by the international emergency response from Israel’s United Hatzalah and from Mexico’s Jewish community through CADENA. President-elect of the State of Israel Isaac Herzog, who is completing his term as Chairman of the Executive of The Jewish Agency for Israel, pledged continued assistance and support in the days and weeks to come in a touching letter to Federation. We were also comforted to welcome Israel’s Minister of Diaspora Affairs Nachman Shai, who accompanied a delegation of elite reserve officers from the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Homefront Command to assist rescue crews. Our partnership city of Yerucham has sent messages of support and prayers led by Mayor Tal Ohana.
