The Jewish National Fund has kicked off its national conference in South Florida, bringing together more than 1,000 leaders, philanthropists, young professionals and college and high school students from both the US and Israel to discuss the key issues Israel and world Jewry are facing in 2017.

Among some of the keynote speakers slated to hold addresses and participate in panels and discussions throughout the three-day confab are Israel's Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer, World Jewish Congress President Ron Lauder, Construction Minister Yoav Gallant, JNF CEO Russel F. Robinson and others.

JNF has raised over the past fiscal year more than $90 million, bringing its 10-year $1 billion goal – now entering its fifth year – to more than $460m.

Among some of the plenaries on the agenda are 'Defeating BDS with Positive Israel Activism on College Campuses,' 'How to Connect Millennials to Israel,' 'Does the Future for American Jewry Lie in Israel?' and many more.
