On June 4, 2015, JNF Calgary was pleased to honour Dr. Lorne and Beth Price, for their outstanding commitment to the Calgary Jewish Community and their longstanding support for the State Of Israel and the Jewish National Fund.
The event took place at Beth Tzedec Synagogue and featured an incredible keynote address from The Honourable Jason Kenney Canada’s Minister of National Defence and Minister for Multiculturalism, and special musical performance from Israeli singing sensation, Dganit Daddo.
Proceeds from the 2015 Negev Campaign will support the creation of the planned therapeutic playground attached to the children’s wing of the Glassman Centre at Herzog Hospital in Jerusalem. The Dr. Lorne & Beth Price Children’s Therapeutic Playground will primarily serve children who are suffering from PTSD and other mental health trauma through outdoor play therapy. Families can also unwind before or after an appointment in a natural setting, carefully designed to promote tranquility and healing. Multiple studies have pointed to the effectiveness of natural settings in enhancing physical, psychological and spiritual well-being.
Thank you to all who attended and supported the 2015 Negev Gala.
