A delegation from Germany came to Israel to tour the country and to learn about KKL-JNF’s many activities in the Arava and Negev for community development, environmental conservation, education and support for disadvantaged populations. The mission was initiated by JNF KKL Germany.


Among those participating in the mission were representatives of the Breuninger Foundation, which undertakes social and educational projects in collaboration with governmental bodies and NGOs. 


"Our mission is to create places where people can collaborate and create together,” said Dr. Helga Breuninger, Chairperson of the foundation.  "When I see the enthusiasm and the initiative of the young generation in Israel, I have no doubt that we can find fertile ground for collaboration".


The delegation participants, who were visiting Israel for the first time, toured the country for two weeks, enjoyed its views and got to know the country. Two days of that tour were dedicated to learning about KKL-JNF projects in southern Israel.

"Our goal is for the participants to get to know Israel as it truly is, not just as tourists", emphasized Sarah Singer, President of JNF KKL Germany. "The members of the delegation got a different perspective on Israel and found that it is very different than how it is presented in the media".


The delegation was accompanied by Yehudit Perl-Strasser of KKL-JNF’s German Desk.
