Youth and Education

A well tended sapling grows into a tall, strong tree. A child who is nurtured and inspired to love Israel and to care for it will grow into strong, upstanding citizens with a strong sense of identity. This is what the KKL-JNF Youth and Education Division is about - nurturing the next generation so that they can in turn love and nurture Israel, their heritage.
