In honor of Israel's 65th anniversary, 22 friends of KKL-JNF from Sweden, Finland and Denamrk visited KKL-JNF sites throughout the country, learning about how KKL-JNF projects affect everyday life and help protect the environment for the benefit of all of Israel's citizens. Ethel Salutskij, the president of KKL-JNF Finland said: "In the Nordic countries, KKL-JNF targets non-Jewish as well as Jewish people, and we very much emphasize ecology and the environment".


Michael Lichtenstein, director of KKL-JNF Sweden, said that the mission had been promoted in both Jewish and Christian communities. "The idea behind this trip was to showcase KKL-JNF projects and to increase people's awareness about what KKL-JNF does. These are people who are interested in both religion and also ecology. We hope to bring similar groups to Israel in the future."


Erika Fenyo from Stockholm served in the past as the vice-president of KKL-JNF Sweden, but he said that even so, he had "never been in many of the places we visited the last couple days. This is also a first for my husband, who hadn't been active like I was. It's been fantastic. The entire program, from the first minute until now, was absolutely extraordinary."KKL


Anne Wilner from Helsinki said that she loved the visit "because I love Israel. The tour itinerary has given me a better perspective on the greater political context that influences many local issues. After what we've seen, I have only positive things to say about KKL-JNF."
