A spectacular JNF fundraiser - answer the call


ORLANDO, FL — As Jewish National Fund-USA continues to support Israel’s immediate needs in response to the global health pandemic, the organization is preparing to phone thousands of supporters in Northern Florida as part of its June 14 Spectacular Sunday telethon. In addition to a world-class line up of online entertainment, the day of giving will also feature a $1 million match enabling donors to double the value of their gift for the land and people of Israel.

“I have always admired the Jewish National Fund for its unwavering commitment to the State of Israel,” said JNF-USA Orlando Board Member and Spectacular Sunday Southeast Community Chairwoman Sandra Grant. “It is my great honor to serve on the Orlando Board of the organization and to be a part of building, supporting, and enhancing life in the homeland of the Jewish People.”

JNF-USA’s Spectacular Sunday boasts an impressive line-up of musicians, comedians, and entertainers, including David Broza, Elon Gold, Michelle Divon, Benji Lovitt, Taylor Williamson, Ethan Herschenfeld, Cory Kahaney, Ilana Levine, Dominic Fumusa, Rick Recht, Rebecca Pidgeon, Peter Himmelman, Distant Cousins, David Mamet, Listen Up! Jewish Vocal Band, Josh Burstein, and more.

“Can you imagine 119-years ago when our founder, Theodore Herzl, a man in his early 40s, asked for the first gift for Jewish National Fund to repurchase the land of Israel for the Jewish people?” said JNF-USA Chief Executive Officer Russell F. Robinson. “Surely, he never could have imagined that in the year 2020, from Florida to Maine and across the ocean to Israel, thousands of people would be standing up and saying count on me!”

To participate in the largest fundraising event in JNF-USA’s history, tune in via YouTube or Facebook on Sunday, June 14 between 12 p.m. – 4 p.m. ET. For more information or to donate, visit jnf.org/spectacularsunday or call 800-542-8733.
