If someone were asked to describe the activities of Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund at the beginning of the twentieth century, in all likelihood the response would include land redemption and land reclamation funded by the Blue Box, KKL-JNF stamps, and so on. If the same question were to be posed in the 1950s, after the founding of the State of Israel, the answer would most probably be afforestation and trees. Today, KKL-JNF is Israel's largest environmental organization. Like the environment itself, KKL-JNF has adapted itself to the ever-changing needs of the Jewish people and the land of Israel, motivated by a dynamism that ensures the organization's relevance in our rapidly evolving reality.
KKL-JNF's commitment to ecological issues, long before the term became a popular catchword, has led to its being involved in many and diverse fields. From developing new water sources to cutting-edge agricultural research and international collaborations, KKL-JNF is always at the cusp of ecological paradigm shifts that demand innovative thinking and action. It is no different with changing economic realities. KKL-JNF periodically reviews and revamps its organizational structure in order to maintain a high level of professionalism.
With the help of its supporters throughout the world, KKL-JNF continues to work together with local organizations, national institutions and the international community for the benefit of man and the environment, ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.
