Making the Desert Bloom

Congregation Beth Emeth

12523 Lawyers Road

Herndon, Virginia 20171

At Beth Emeth, HAZAK is a congenial group for all interested adults of an uncertain age who want to continue to grow their Jewish and World understanding in a friendly and welcoming environment. HAZAK members do not need to be CBE members.

Our April speaker is Anne Greenspoon, Associate Director of Israel Advocacy & Education at the Jewish National Fund (JNF). Ms Greenspoon will talk about JNF: Making the Desert Bloom.

Today’s JNF is much more than Blue Boxes and planting trees. JNF strives to bring an enhanced quality of life to all of Israel’s residents, and translate these advancements to the world beyond. JNF is greening the desert with millions of trees, building thousands of parks, creating new communities and cities, bolstering Israel’s water supply, helping develop innovative arid-agriculture techniques, and educating both young and old about the founding and importance of Israel and Zionism.

In her role as Associate Director of Israel Advocacy & Education, Anne Tanhoff Greenspoon oversees all of JNF’s national college programs and reaches out to bring Israel and JNF to schools, synagogues, and communities in the Mid-Atlantic region. Anne has worked in the Education world as a teacher, administrator, fundraiser and consultant for 28 years.
