On Tuesday May 19th 2015, JNF Windsor honoured Jeff Watson, MP Essex, at the 2015 Negev Dinner. Over 500 people attended the event to pay tribute to Mr. Watson for his great work in serving our community and for his strong support of Israel.
Proceeds from the 2015 Negev Campaign will be directed towards building a special classroom for youth at risk at the Bet Yerah High School in the Jordan Valley Regional Council. The Bet Yerah High School is a special program for youth-at-risk in the Lower Galilee area. The program serves to empower them with practical tools for life, including vocational skills and environmental projects. KKL-JNF will prepare the infrastructure for the classroom and the students, guided by staff, will undertake most of its construction, including door and window framing, plumbing, and carpentry.
The evening was beautiful with a fascinating keynote address from The Honourable Jason Kenney.
Thank you to all who attended and supported the 2015 Negev Dinner.
