Campaign Launch

The Project

The Wendy Eisen & Carole Zucker JNF Fellowship

The voices of antisemitism, often conveniently disguised as anti-Zionism, are rising to disturbing levels.   From BDS to the return of violent neo-Nazis, Israel and the Jewish people are being targeted like never before, in an unprecedented atmosphere of permissiveness.

This is your opportunity to defeat lies with truth.

Funds from this year’s JNF Negev Dinner will establish The Wendy Eisen and Carole Zucker JNF Fellowship. The Fellowship will support annual cross Canada tours of global experts who can share the truth about Israel to a broad and diverse audience.

Your support is vital and will enable more people to know the facts about Israel.

The Honourees

Wendy Eisen

Wendy Herman Eisen was born in Toronto and received her Bachelor of Arts degree from McGill University.

Through voluntary and philanthropic activities, Wendy continues to exhibit
a passionate commitment to the welfare of the Jewish people, while being
actively involved in Citipark, her family’s eighty-year old parking company.
Wendy played a prominent role in the global campaign to liberate Jews from the Soviet Union. Following the parting of the Iron Curtain in 1991, she
chronicled the success of the Soviet Jewry campaign through the publication of her book Count Us In — the Struggle to Free Soviet Jews.

Wendy was the founding chair of the Holy Blossom Temple Foundation and
she assumed the co-chairmanship of Toronto’s 1995 UJA Campaign. She has
led UIA Missions to Eastern Europe, the Soviet Union, Argentina and Israel.
Wendy and her husband Elliott have served as co-chairs of the Canadian
Friends of the Israel Museum since 2001. They have four married daughters
and nine grandchildren.

Carole Zucker

Carole Herman Zucker has always embraced a passion for philanthropy,
exemplified by her lifetime commitment to many causes.
While beginning a family and attending University of Toronto, she founded
NOAR Chapter of Hadassah, and became their first President. Carole has
directed her talent for fundraising and a sincere interest in growing medical
related causes. While continuing to work in her family business, Citipark,
Carole co-chaired Mount Sinai Hospital Auxiliary galas and then in 1985 was
elected President. In 2004 Carole was Co-President of Israel Cancer Research
Fund (ICRF) directing the charity to soar to new heights via chairing and
fundraising for many ICRF events.
Throughout these commitments, Carole devoted time to chair UJA’s Lion
of Judah and Atarah divisions. She presently continues as Co-President of
Hadassah’s Noar Chapter. Together with her husband Dr. Bernard Zucker,
Carole enjoys being involved with their many children and grandchildren.
